Animation DesignAn industry focused programme specialising in performance based character / creature animation, visual effects and experimental techniques.
News"I chose the course as a way to get a head start in the visual art and entertainment industry."
Gareth Harbuz, BA (Hons) Animation Design. Gareth is now employed at Double Negative Visual Effects, working in a team on a major blockbuster
"Studying at DMU provided me with valuable skills and fantastic opportunities to get in touch with industry professionals. The senior lecturers were a great support, and consistently made a huge effort to spread that support to everyone who who sought it, wanting to succeed. Staff sacrificed their personal time on numerous occassions to the benefit of the students in order for them to raise their standard of work."
"Without the guidance and support from the senior staff in the Animation Design department, I'm confident I would have found it considerably more difficult to find an industry job upon graduating from university."
