This degree will prepare you for a career in the animation and visual effects industries. The theoretical and practical skills that are essential to these career paths are comprehensively covered through majors in Character Animating, Art Direction and Technical Direction. Using top of the line hardware and premium, industry-recognised software, you will produce original animated films from script to screen. In doing so, you will learn skills in concept development, storyboarding, 2D and 3D character animation, editing, sound recording, visual effects and post-production.
You will also develop the ability to work out the most appropriate animation format for specific projects – traditional drawn animation, 2D, 3D and motion-captured digital animation, 3D puppet or clay animation and other experimental media. Your academic studies will be extended by studio courses and engagement with industry production, which will enable you to gain first-hand experience.
You will work alongside film and screen media production and games design students to complete community projects and have opportunities to collaborate with students from the Queensland Conservatorium.
