Course Summary

This course has a strong focus on preparing you for working in the industry. The course has been designed by and is run by industry professionals (who are still active and work in the industry today) with an overwhelming knowledge of film, TV, game, animation and comic productions. There are regularly consultations with studios, such as Atomhawk, to ensure our teaching practises are reflective of current industry trends. We also invite guest speakers from studios, such as Ubisoft and DreamWorks to not only engage with our you but to set you briefs reflecting the kind of work you would be expected to do in a professional environment. You will have access to excellent facilities which include high-specification computers with graphics tablets and more specialised equipment such as Cintiqs, green screen facilities and motion capture, as well as drawing studios, scanners and light boxes for more traditional art development. Many graduates have become professional freelancers, as well as working at a variety of studios including Creative Assembly, Splash Damage, Atomhawk and Paramount Pictures.
