FOUNDED IN 1988, SUPINFOCOM RUBIKA IS A REFERENCE AMONG ANIMATION SCHOOLS. THIS SUCCESS IS THE RESULT OF A PEDAGOGICAL WORK OF EXCELLENCE, AND A BALANCE BETWEEN ARTISTIC AND TECHNICAL LEARNING.

The program covers five years of study and leads to the production of a short 3D animated film, in professional conditions. Throughout their training, students exercise their skills on many individual and team projects, in which they held different specializations. This professional approach is a valuable asset in their future career. At the end of the course, students master all stages of the making of a 3D animated project: preproduction (scenario, storyboard, layout 2D and 3D), production (3D modeling, rigging, animation) and post-production (lighting, rendering, special effects…).

Short films of Supinfocom are acclaimed by professionals around the world, including the most prestigious animation festivals (MIFA Annecy, SIGGRAPH, ITFS Stuttgart …).
