    Overview

    Animation at the VCA has a longstanding, world-class reputation. Our graduates light up animated screens around the world. We invite you to join our creative team.

    The Animation specialisation involves the practical exploration, innovation and development of animated screen production. It incorporates research, idea development, screenwriting, storyboarding, character design and expression. It also covers a comprehensive range of animation art, craft and technical production methods, styles and outcomes.

    Animation methods include paint on glass, charcoal, sand, ink, 2D and 3D digital, stop-motion, pixilation, rotoscoping, visual effects and motion graphics, experimental film techniques, projection art and interdisciplinary collaborations. Among the diverse range of creative challenges, each student in every year level produces an animated short film that they write, direct, animate, create sound for and edit.

    In class, you will be challenged to respond to set problems and pursue your own creative thinking to keep the material fresh and relevant to your own experience.
