Course Introduction

MA 3D Computer Animation is a practice-led course that explores both the theory and practice of digital 3D animation in film, television, games and interactive applications. With new and emerging technologies changing how we make, understand and experience animation, you'll be encouraged to push boundaries and explore the practices of animation from a variety of critical and professional perspectives. MA 3D Computer Animation offers a thorough understanding of the different processes to integrate 3D animation into projects, as well as introducing solid animation skills for work within traditional computer-generated imagery (CGI) mediums such as film and motion graphics. London College of Communication is well placed to build on the teaching expertise and reputation of the existing MA Animation course, to provide MA 3D Computer Animation to students from backgrounds as varied as fine art, motion graphics, animation and architecture.

This course forms an integral part of a future-facing Screen School at LCC; dedicated to collaborative working, new fields of enquiry and research with a global reach. In an era of unparalleled opportunities for skilled visual players and sequential image-makers, you will create, explore and play with 3D digital technologies and develop a specialist personal practice. The animation industry is rapidly evolving, with new developments in real-time animation and immersive digital world-building. Through experimentation and learning of advanced technical skills, you?ll instigate innovative approaches driven by critical understanding and self-reflection. During the course, you?ll create 3D computer animation sequences and assets, both individually and as part of creative teams comprising students from different media disciplines.
