RUBIKA

CAMPUS RUBIKA FRANCE

3D Animation

The 3D Animator intervenes on animated films or advertisements using computer-generated images. Endowed with a particularly developed artistic and observational sense, he implements on computer the expressions and movements that will give life to the characters, creatures and objects present in the film.

PRESENTATION

RUBIKA’s 3D Animation training course rains high-level creative and technical people ready to enter the markets of animated films, 3D image or advertising.

Technical and demanding, the training places students in conditions like those of a professional studio. Through practical works, students discover the different stages of an animated film production : script, storyboard, art direction, modeling, animation, editing… A large part of the training is also devoted to management and working methods in a studio. The last year of training is devoted to a short-animated film realized in a team presented in front of a professional jury. This project allows students to put into practice the skills acquired during their training.
