3D Animation for Games


This module will build on the skills developed through 3D modelling 1 and 2.  Students on this module will focus on 3D modelling and Animation for the Games Industry

Students will develop a series of 'game art' and animated outputs which encourages a unique creative output.  The module will focus on enhancing students skills and building their portfolio for a carrier in Game Design.     

Students will focus on advancing their workflow within a 3D production pipeline, incorporating environment design, character animation and real-time video production within a game engine.

Students will also be encouraged to develop transferable 3D skills in associated fields of industrial design, VFX, VR and AR; with a focus on building a portfolio for Game Design.
