Summary

Animation Production is at the forefront of storytelling, creating a deep emotional connection to a global audience. Animation is made up of many different creative processes and inhabits a multitude of contexts. The Masters course provides an opportunity for you to hone your professional approaches to the discipline. In the creation of animation for different commercial and artistic platforms, the world of the animator occupies both physical and digital arenas and is increasingly seen as an innovative and dynamic communication tool of the future. Our course offers continuing students or graduates from creative art and design subjects with an opportunity to enhance their knowledge, creative skills and employment prospects.

Our course aims to enable you to:

* Critically appraise the importance of social, ethical, technological and cultural dimensions of animation production as applied to your personal practice and that of others.

* Evidence advanced knowledge and understanding of animation production and its current and emerging global applications such as, but not limited to, 2D and 3D analogue, digital and computer animation, motion graphics, game art and design.

* Systematically plan, negotiate and implement topical research to substantiate a coherent body of practice in advanced animation production.

* Contribute to the principles and processes of animation production in supporting innovation within commercial or creative industries.

* Evidence awareness and relevance of your practice and skills in relation to professional standards in animation production, such as through appropriately developed animation pipeline processes

Our course aims to encourage you to push the boundaries of animation practice with the development of innovative and imaginative concepts and ideas relevant to the design of animated products and artefacts. We will introduce you to a variety of platforms and a range of situations and contexts within which animation sits, enabling you to experiment, expand, progress and communicate your ideas through different forms and processes, both digital and analogue.

Materials:
You will need to cover the cost of manufacturing and printing your work during the course. You will need to consider how you document and back up your work. You will also need to supply your own materials, which may include drawing (sketchbooks, pens, specialist papers) or craft materials and specialist tools. The approximate cost of these items in recent years has been approximately £500. However, given the nature of the Masters course, where your own project design is the driving focus for specific outcomes, these costs are approximations only. There is no limit on the amount you may wish to spend. It may be that, depending on the nature of what you intend to produce, the costs may increase or decrease. The costs vary depending on the materials you choose, the specialist area you pursue and how you present your work.
