This course seeks to develop students' ideas, creativity and technical knowledge. Animation is a versatile, wide-ranging, expressive form and the knowledgeable staff encourage you to investigate all aspects of it. The creative opportunities are huge, open to many genres and methods. We eschew a 'school style' and support students finding their own style and expression through this wonderful medium.

Operating as usual


We are starting to instagram more these days. Please drop us a line if you are interested in the course, or connecting with our students for paid projects.
