Founded in 1988, RUBIKA Animation School is a leading institution in the field of higher education in animation and digital visual effects. Our school has earned this position for many reasons: teaching provided by working professionals, prestigious partners (Mikros, MacGuff, MPC, Xilam, Cube Creative) and student productions that have won awards at festivals around the world (SIGGRAPH, MIFA Annecy, PIAFF, Hollyshorts Film Festival, etc.).

A PROFESSIONAL ANIMATION SCHOOL

By joining RUBIKA, you will benefit from all the advantages of a consistent, structured and professional curriculum. Throughout the course, students learn to create animated films in a team. They learn to be versatile and to grasp all the jobs in the production chain, from script writing to editing, including art direction and, of course, animation. Artistic and technical training is combined with cultural education (art history, civilisation, film analysis, semiology, etc.) and English courses. A large part of the training is also devoted to management and interpersonal skills, with practical application during a variety of group projects.

The fifth year is devoted to the production of an animated short film, to be presented in front of a jury of professionals. This short film is the result of a complete educational program and provides a gateway to production studios around the world.

Our training programs are certified by the State as a « Digital Producer » at Level 7 of the National Directory of Professional Certifications (Master’s Degree equivalent).
