OVERVIEWHave you ever wanted to create your own superhero in an original 3D animated movie, design breath-taking special effects, or make your own animation? The New York Film Academy Australia's 3D Animation and Visual Effects program offered at our Gold Coast and Sydney locations gives students the chance to learn how to make animation using industry standard 3D animation software, that you will use to create and animate 3D models and immersive 3D animation. New York Film Academy Australia delivers the nationally recognised training program CUA51015 - Diploma of Screen and Media with chosen coursework focused on 3D animation.
In the program, students study in state-of-the-art facilities to learn the essentials of 3D animation and learn how to become an animator, starting from sketches, to creating 3D models, to making their own 3D animated movies. Over the course of two semesters, students acquire the technical and aesthetic know-how required to bring their imagination to life.
In addition to working with state-of-the-art equipment and the best animation software, students also get the benefit of studying under NYFA Australia's world-class faculty of accomplished and professional 3D animators and special effects artists who remain active in the industry. Each faculty member boasts a unique amount of professional experience and specialties that will help students develop into well-rounded 3D animators and master the art of how to become an animator.
Students interested in this program do not need to have previous experience with 3D animation, though students with a background in studio art and computer programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop are encouraged to apply. However, regardless of experience level, the pace of the program is intense and extremely hands-on, so students will quickly find themselves on level with one another.
The New York Film Academy Australia’s 3D Animation and Visual Effects program is the ideal choice for those who desire to make their own animation, create original 3D models, and ultimately complete an original 3D animated film. The skills learned in the 3D animation program can be applied to a host of other industries, including architectural modeling, game design, and much more. Furthermore, students graduate with a reel of their completed projects to show to prospective employers. In addition, students get the added benefit of working with their fellow students to create a collaborative network that can last long after completing the program.
