Our students are our greatest advocates. Find out what they have to say about studying animation at NUA.
Students Sim, Stephanie and Andrew talk about technical facilities, practical projects and live industry briefs.
The diversity of projects meant we explored lots of different ideas. We used the NUA workshops and software to push our ideas further.
Stephanie and Fiona Dulieu
The course focused on a variety of software skills which we used in live briefs, set by animators working for companies such as Baby Cow and balloon dog
We work in all types of animation including 3D, 2D and stop motion. You can experiment on each project and through our group work I’ve had the chance to be involved with all aspects from storyboarding and editing to sound design.
Live project briefs teach the need for meeting deadlines and help develop communication and presentation skills, vital in today’s industry.
Having specialised technicians for each stage of production is fab because we get a real understanding of pre-production and production, like setting up sets and lights. We edit and compose our films in a really professional way.
Presenting to representatives from industry is scary but rewarding. I’ve learned how to present myself in a professional manner.
