Specializations

Through a year of learning, you will successfully complete the courses and fully demonstrate your skills, to become an excellent international digital art experts. Specializations of the program courses include:

3D Animation

Animators create performances that allow an audience to forget they are seeing pixels on a screen. In this specialization, you refine your focus in disciplines like Storyboarding, Visual Storytelling, Art Direction, Character Design, Modeling and Rigging, 3D Animation, 3D Texturing, and 3D Lighting.

Modeling

Models are the foundation of all 3D media. Every medium, whether its imagery is computer-generated or live action, requires 3D models. This specialty focuses on developing students’ ability to model and understanding of textures and lighting effects. It also includes some instruction in sculpture, human anatomy, hair and cloth simulation, all of which are necessary for modeling.

Visual Effects

Visual Effects (VFX) is any effect digitally created or enhanced for a movie, television, or video game production. The goal of all visual effects is to keep the audience focused on the story and characters, and good VFX artists are judged by their ability to make the impossible seem absolutely real through integration of live plates with CG elements.
