- Program Description:
- You’ve always felt the impulse to create and pride yourself on keeping up with the latest trends in technology. Video games are a bit of an obsession and you never complain when filmmakers sacrifice story for mind-bending special effects. For a career, you cringe at the mention of a suit and tie, preferring to see yourself working with a team of crack animators on the next blockbuster game or Hollywood megahit. Are you ready to put the frames into action?
Our Animation for Game, Film & Visual Effects program gives you the training and experience to pursue your dream job in 3D animation. You learn the latest techniques in an environment that runs like a fast-paced, real-world production studio more than a classroom. And if you prefer, complete your studies through a combination of in-class and online teaching, a new option to give students a unique and flexible learning experience.
Our instructors continue to lend their expertise and talents to countless television and film productions, including The Twilight Saga, District 9, and The Muppets Go to Oz; along with video games such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Tiger Woods, NHL, FIFA, and more.
Working with these award-winning animation wizards gives you the skills to become a sought-after animator in your own right. Through us, you will excel at all facets of the craft, including animation, modeling, lighting, texturing, rigging, rendering, compositing, life drawing, character design, layout design, game design, level design, game environment design, and storyboarding.
Upon completion, graduates receive a laptop loaded with the Adobe Creative Suite, our gift to ensure you hit the job market with not only the skills and drive to succeed, but with the means to do what you do best — create.
Past graduates of this program are now working at top studios such as Bardel Entertainment, EA Sports, Pixelyard, Blue Drop, Gogi Games, DHX Studios, and Disney Interactive. Spend 24 months with the Centre for Arts and Technology and be primed to join them in any of these careers:
