Animation Production (Evening - 8 weeks)

Interested in taking the next Animation project from start to finish?

This is an entirely new course, focused on the nuts and bolts of producing animated content, and designed (like all our courses) with practical outcomes in mind. Animation producers play an important role in any project, offering the studios services to the client and working closely with internal teams.

You might be a producer trying to get an indie production off the ground, or an employee of a production company looking to broaden your skills. In eight weeks, this course will provide you the practical know how to make your project investable and achievable in the real world.

You'll gain the core skills you need to own the production process, from understanding the animation pipeline, pitching for the project, to managing a team and keeping to essential budgets and timelines.

The course is designed and led by industry professionals. In particular, Producer Bob Thompson brings his experience of producing independent animated films such as the Bionicle series and Ultramarines.

Specifically doing the animation course helped fast track my Maya skillset to allow me to apply for a greater variation of jobs. I now regularly work in both 2D and 3D allowing me to be more versatile.
