In the final trimesters of study, students learn a number of sophisticated skills including character rigging, intricate application scripting for games engines and motion capture for real-time games animation and cinematics. These skills are geared towards the final project which begins with the formation of teams, the generation of ideas and a thorough work-up of the games design process. In the final trimester of studio development, teams spend time producing their game concept in a process designed to emulate a real-world game production. With lecturers acting as Executive Producers, students incorporate knowledge developed thus far to produce a fully-interactive game world. These worlds may be suited for use as either a prototype of a possible larger production, or a complete smaller-scale independent games project. Finally, students are supported in developing their games art show reels and skills for finding suitable employment as they transition into the professional workplace.

Students quickly begin to develop a deeper level of understanding of the processes, design and performance qualities of great animation. Concepts in acting, gesture, 2D and 3D form are also explored from the traditional to the digital, and from the roughly conceptual to the polished and professional. Students are also introduced to the visual language of filmmaking and explore the magic of effects and systems such as motion capture, one of the techniques used in some of the most recent blockbuster films. The 3D Animation unit delves deeper into the acting and storytelling aspects of the art. Students are required to develop their own interpretation on assigned themes, bringing their characters to life with emotion and personality. Material developed in class is included in the students’ professional show reel. In the final stage of study, further sophisticated skill areas are explored, including character rigging and motion (or performance) capture. This leads into a final project, which begins with an intensive pre-production subject where students form teams to generate ideas and workshop the design process together. Under the supervision of their lecturers, students go into full studio production mode. They are required to complete and ‘executive produce’ their final team project through the execution of a high quality 3D animated film that may also involve co-operation and collaboration with students from other courses. Finally, students are supported in developing show reels and are provided with techniques for seeking employment and moving into the professional workplace. What Career will this course prepare me for? JMC Academy Students are given extensive and practical exposure to a diverse range of skills, information and related industries to ensure they are able to identify and pursue employment in relevant professional fields.
