Motion Graphics (Evening - 12 weeks)

Get your career in motion!

Motion Design (or Motion Graphics) is a versatile skillset in the creative industries, that can be applied to a range of sectors such as film, TV, advertising, web, apps and games.

Our part-time course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of motion graphics, combining design and animation to create a variety of animated pieces in tutor-led sessions. You'll get hands on with the industry-standard software Adobe After Effects and Cinema 4D, completing exercises within each software to build up a good foundational knowledge with each that can be applied to your own work. The course is equally split between After Effects and Cinema 4D, so that you have a good understanding of how to build your own projects and the process used in professional work.

This course is an introduction to the software used in every motion design studio. You'll apply your skills to practical projects, learning to respond to short briefs, adapt to critique and hit deadlines. You’ll be led by industry-experienced tutors, who will give feedback and critique to the work you produce, as well as industry advice. You’ll also have access to plenty of resources, inspiration and assets. This course is ideal for those already working in digital creative fields who are looking to expand into a new discipline or simply get started with After Effects or 3D.
