Bachelors in Design in Sydney in Australia. Undertake the Bachelor of Animation at SAE and build your expertise in all facets of Animation. Students will develop fundamental skills and knowledge in this exciting industry in areas such as 3D modelling, character animation, rigging, textures, project management, teamwork, lighting, rendering and compositing. Developing a solid understanding of these areas provides students with a solid foundation and context for further study before exploring in detail the specialist areas. During your time at SAE you will learn on industry standard software such as Maya, Autodesk 3D MAX and the Adobe Creative Suite. You will undertake specialised units designed for students to participate in real-world projects under the guidance of expert SAE staff. With this unique teaching style, you will demonstrate your skills and technical knowledge in a collaborative and creative studio-based learning environment. Your Studies: Each degree program is broken up into discrete stages, each designed to promote different skills. Stage I – Foundational Skills Development In Stage I, you will undertake a number of foundational units which will give you the essential technical skills and knowledge not only relevant to your discipline area, but also give you the skills required to collaborate with other creative media students and professionals in later stages of the program. Storytelling for contemporary media Principles of design Fundamentals of drawing Foundations of 3D graphics Principles of animation Project management and professional etiquette Critical and creative thinking Contemporary industry overview Stage II – Interdisciplinary Projects, Media and Cultural Studies In Stage II you will be working in simulated project groups where you are working towards large scale deliverables each trimester. Within Stage II we will not only get you to apply your Stage I skills in a deeper context, but help you work within the contemporary creative media workforce. In Stage II we show you how your work contributes to and interacts with broader culture and media practice. This knowledge will enable you to work with a variety of other disciplines and artists and expand your potential on the global stage. You will complete a number of real-world projects with students not only in your own discipline, but in all other SAE disciplines. In Stage II, you will be given the opportunity to work as project specialists within the following areas. The types of projects and project roles you choose to undertake will determine what area of specialisation you fall within. Stage II has three studio modules with projects based on the following areas; 1. 3D Modelling In 3D Modelling, students will examine modelling techniques, terminology and methods. Students will develop and implement 3D production pipelines to create such things as environments, vehicles, creatures and characters. Students will need to research industry best practices and keep up to date with current trends in CGI production. This specialisation will further explore texturing and shading, lighting and rendering. 2. Character Animation In the Character Animation specialisation, students will focus on the principles of character animation such as posing, motion studies, body mechanics, facial animation and much more. Students will also learn to develop effective and user friendly animation rigs that serves as a means to control and animate a character, similar to the controls of a puppet. 3. Visual Effects In the Visual Effects specialisation, students will explore the areas of modelling, texturing, lighting, rendering and compositing with an emphasis on incorporating assets into a range of digital media. Students can investigate topics such as matchmoving, particle systems, dynamic simulations and colour grading. By the end of the course, students will be able to composite a range of disparate elements into a cohesive final product. Stage III Stage III is the final part of your studies. Here you will undertake an interdisciplinary project of your choice to be the final and most ambitious portfolio project that you will undertake. You will also finalise your studies by undertaking an elective module and completing a compulsory internship. By the time you graduate, you will have; a professional online presence that you will have begun building at the start of the program, a wide range of interdisciplinary projects present in your portfolio, and a deeper understanding of the creative media fields and real-world experience. Upon graduating, you will be proficient in Maya, Autodesk 3D MAX and the Adobe Creative Suite and will have built a portfolio to demonstrate your skills in your chosen specialisation including the ability to produce collaborative creative films, interactive media titles and more. You will have real-world skills, having worked in a simulated environment making the transition from study to workplace seamless. [-]
