Given the ever-changing nature of the thrilling animation industry, the learning curve is becoming increasingly steep. And the days of self-taught hopefuls breaking into the business without any formal training are over.
The Animation School is South Africa’s leading accredited Animation and Visual Effects training centre, and we consistently produce qualified Digital Animators with practical skills in the creation of 3D-Animation and Visual Effects. We even have an Emmy award-winning graduate to prove it!
As a third-year student of the school you will get to work on ad hoc projects alongside industry colleagues to gain very real on-the-job training and experience. Something potential employers will expect - and something you can’t learn from a textbook. Practical training like ours is now more important than ever before.
Our curriculum has also been designed to give you a powerful command of the current tools and techniques used in Animation and Visual Effects production. But most importantly, the 3-year course will heighten your aesthetic senses and push your artistic development even further.
Our curriculum works and it works hard. This viewpoint is supported by the consistent prizes and accolades that our students win.
We concentrate on giving students a solid foundation of 3D artistic development – both on a creative and technical level. So that when it comes time for international and local employers to assess potential job candidates, The Animation School’s students stand head and shoulders above the rest.
Furthermore, our curriculum is supported by industry authorities to make sure that the education we provide meets the ever-changing requirements of the animation industry. And as a successful graduate who has finished our 3-year full time course, you will have developed and refined your artistic talent to an entry-level skills level for acceptance in the highly competitive animation industry.
