Computer Animation - (Bachelor of Fine Arts)
DMAC’s Computer Animation students become more than just designers—they become digital storytellers. In just three years, students earn a BFA while mastering the core fundamentals of visual storytelling, classical art, and advanced computer-generated techniques.
Successful Computer Animation careers begin with DMAC.
Our Computer Animation students choose a thesis that will be part of their final design portfolio. These portfolios showcase students’ creative perspectives, while capturing their finest work in a package that’s easy to market to potential employers. Skills students learn include the following:
- 3-D modeling
- Lighting and texturing
- Technical direction
- Concept art and design
Design vision dominates.
Those majoring in Computer Animation are immersed in real-world processes of digital production flow, which means students understand every facet of how real computer animations are created. Students participate in every step of the animation design process, including:
- Screenplay writing
- Storyboarding shots and scenes
- Modeling, texturing, and animating characters and environments
- Using cinematic lighting to create mood and depth
Enter as a student. Graduate as a design professional.
