Master Programs in Animation in the Ile-de-France France. This course allows each student to further their skills in the following fields: production direction, story board, directing, concept art, layout, modelling, rigging, animation, matte painting, lighting, rendering, VFX and compositing.
Students develop their skills in directing, use of software, combining 2-D and 3-D techniques for complex projects and optimizing production calendar management. This approach leads to an in-depth knowledge of the entire production pipeline for 3-D animated films. Furthermore, it allows students from a 2-D background to learn 3-D tools, and for those from a real-time background to gain experience in staging and in precalculated 3-D.
