CAMPUS RUBIKA MONTREAL

NTL1.J PRODUCTION OF A DIGITAL ANIMATED FILM 🇨🇦

The « 2D/3D Animation » training of the RUBIKA Montreal campus prepares artists for 2D and animation jobs in general. During their training, they will learn how to lead team projects in real production conditions.

PRESENTATION

Nowadays, more and more business lines call upon Animation and more precisely character and environment animation. It is therefore fundamental to know and understand the mechanisms and principles that can give life to an environment, a character, an animal or a creature in computer-generated images.

Coupled with artistic grounding related to reality observation, a gradual technical training accompanies you so that you can implement within 2D/3D software, animations and expressions that will give life to your imagination.

Annual projects allow you to put into practice the notions seen in class and to work on project management and team management. A final 3D animation project at the end of the cycle will be presented in front of a professional jury.
