If you possess some prior experience, software skills, and a solid understanding of animation, this programme is tailor-made for you. Our comprehensive two-month training program will equip you with the knowledge, skills, and connections you need to thrive in the dynamic animation industry.
This first programme is focusing on 3D Animation created using Blender and is supported by the multi-award winning Blue Zoo Animation Studio! To aid accessibility the programme will be delivered as a hybrid of remote sessions and in-person workshops. These will be scheduled in lunchtimes and the evenings so can be fitted around other commitments if needed. The time commitment is roughly 10 hours per week, this includes 2-4 hours of workshops, with the rest of the time learning independently and working on an employer-led brief.
This programme is offered in collaboration with the NextGen Creative Skills Hub and The Creative Academy Hub at Capital City College Group.
