Course description

Why take this course? (Live Online Classes)

Have you ever wished that you could produce your own animations for web, devices and video?

This 3D Modelling, Animation and Game Design course will teach you how to model objects, while developing high quality 3D environments.  You will then populate these environments with original characters, bringing them to life with the latest animation techniques.

Most of today’s films and games would not be as exciting and sensational without talented animators bringing these characters to life.

What will You Experience?

  • Develop the essential skills and knowledge in 3D modelling, animation and game design that will enable you to take your first steps into a new career in this exciting field.
  • You will learn from an industry experienced Professional who will guide and support you to achieve your goals.
  • Learn from experienced industry experts who will support and prepare you for the real-life knowledge, skills, and competence required in your studies.
