Full Sail University Computer Animation
Computer Animation Program
Whether it's implementing massive crowd scenes in a movie, color correcting products for a television commercial, or creating the vast landscapes players travel through in a video game, artists are using computer graphics in nearly every aspect of the entertainment industry. Full Sail's Computer Animation program was designed to prepare you for a career in this exciting field.
By expanding your abilities as an artist and learning the latest tools, applications, and design theory used to create 3D content for different media, you'll not only be able to take your art in new directions, but also put your skills to work realizing – and sometimes even improving – the creative vision of others.
Your early classes will teach you a foundation of traditional art and animation principles, including life drawing, shading and lighting, and sculpting 3D characters. This curriculum also covers the principles of physics, anatomy, and color theory, all of which you'll take into computer animation courses where you'll create digital characters, objects, and environments.
Supporting classes in compositing, rendering, and rigging will round out your abilities, and your final months will be spent combining all that you've learned into an animation portfolio that will demonstrate your ability to create professional quality assets for film, television, video games, and more.
