Course Introduction

Based at the recently refurbished Harrow Campus ' home to the Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design ' you will work alongside students from film, photography, music, fashion and journalism, in a unique hothouse of creative opportunity. The course is delivered by a team of animation practitioners and established tutors with practices in illustration, visual communication, film and fine art. You will have the opportunity to work in dedicated, high'specification studios with facilities for blue screen, rostrum animation, CGI, drawing, film, photography, set building, sound and video. You will develop your own practice in animation, and you will be encouraged to work on shared initiatives; students from animation work with students from fashion, music or other disciplines as each project requires. Our courses reflect the fast'changing opportunities in art, design and new media; our teaching programmes combine the development of professional'level studio practice with the acquisition of skills, knowledge and understanding.
