Animation studios

Imagine getting access to the kind of kit that lets you create Pixar-style computer-aided animation. Or impressing Aardman with your stop frame answer to Wallace and Gromit films. Stop imagining and make it happen...

What's waiting for you?

Industry-standard equipment and software

Join us to bring your ideas to life working on exactly the same kit you'll be using once you begin your career in animation. 

We work with the local animation industry to ensure both software and hardware is industry standard and current – from the cameras we use for stop-motion to the software that we support.

Facilities for every style of animation

Feel at home in light and airy professional animation studio spaces, and really hone your craft with technical guidance and support from passionate, professional animators. There's teaching and learning across a wide range of animation practice:

  • Traditional hand-drawn and stop-motion techniques
  • 2D digital
  • Computer-generated forms
  • Digital compositing
  • Post-production activities.

You'll have the choice to specialise in a process, or work in hybrid forms using the Adobe creative suite of software, Maya, Z Brush, Toon Boom Harmony, Toon Boom Storyboard Pro, Cel Action and TV Paint.

Did you know? All undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled on an animation module have full access to portable equipment like light boxes and sound recorders and studio spaces.

Film Studios

Our Film Studios opened in 2019 – they're a great asset to animators too. Here you'll find: 

  • Industry-standard production and post-production filmmaking and photography facilities.
  • A film and TV studio – complete with greenscreen.
  • Audio/Foley recording suites.
