Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Art Studies in Asia 2019. Overview

The VFX award is for applicants looking for a career in the film, post-production or games industries - although some graduates may move onto positions within the architectural visualization, re-touching/advertising agencies or postgraduate study.

VFX is predominantly about ideas and concept generation for film or games, covering characters, vehicles, products, clothing, sets, and environments - ultimately taking those ideas through to finished concept artwork or 3D models. More than ever, the film and games industries need tangible, exciting plots/scenarios with characters, environments, and props to match them. Students develop ideas sometimes as 2D artwork concepts, complemented by accurate 3D digital modeling, coupled with green screen/compositing techniques. Design methodology, concept origination, speculative design, visualization skills, life drawing, physical sketch and facsimile modeling provide traditional design skills. Project work is undertaken individually or as part of a team. Our staff has good (and expanding) industrial links. Where possible they call on their research or commercial work to inform and shape the curriculum, resulting in more industry-savvy graduates. Entry Requirements ... [-]

[+]

The Bachelor of Arts in Game Design concentrates on the visual and narrative aspects of game design. The first year of the program focuses primarily on developing fundamental knowledge and skills in drawing, color, tone, composition, and animation, in addition to mathematics, and computer science. Students learn how to design, model, and texture both 2D and 3D art assets, from individual characters to entire levels. As students progress, they put their skills to the test in real-world, collaborative projects where they design, prototype and iterate their own fully playable 2D and 3D games.

The field of digital entertainment has moved from an era where designers were self-taught and learned on the job, to one where even entry-level designers are expected to be well-trained with proven design skills, along with an understanding of technology, art, audio, narrative, and psychology. Designing digital entertainment is ultimately about breathing life into every aspect of what would otherwise be lifeless code and static pixels on a screen. Designers must continually place themselves in the heads and hearts of their players, shaping every action, every response, the ebb-and-flow of the game’s intensity, and then skillfully blend the mechanical, spatial, narrative, visual, and aural aspects of the entire experience. This degree program prepares graduates to be a modern game designer, capable of working in large teams, communicating and collaborating with other designers, artists, and engineers, and able to create an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts....
