At the end of the 3rd year, the final exam is validated by a vocational training certificate with the OPQF qualification. 

Presentation

Formation duration: 3 years

3D animation and computer graphics are present today in all areas of creative communication. The Animation and 3D production program, taught in three years, provides training in these techniques. It is naturally oriented towards the key sectors of digital creation: video games and animated films.

In addition to learning the basic techniques required for professionalization, every year the student carries out one or more projects, alone or in small teams. A core curriculum in first year and a specialization in Real or Game sector in the following years.

In the first year, students make a short film and a game model: they write their script, create characters and sets, draw the storyboard, model and animate their characters, set their “gameplay” …! This training is based on a realistic and concrete project management logic led by professional speakers: this shared passion must lead our students to be the animators and video game creators of tomorrow.
