Course content

Course Content 

On this course you will be encouraged to develop specific skills in one of two areas, Architectural Visualisation or 3D Character Design and Animation, as well as developing a high level of technical knowledge and creativity through a major piece of project work.

Architectural Visualisation options will bring a deeper understanding of architectural styles and structural requirements as well as image composition, photography and colour to ensure you have a fully rounded approach to image creation. This will be complemented by technologies such as virtual reality and game engine visualisation methods which are emerging into the arch vis field, and large scene capture techniques for scanning buildings and cities.

Character Design and Animation options will develop your ability to apply anatomical knowledge to 3D character models as well as creating extra depth to characters with back-stories and the use of silhouettes as emotive triggers - important principles for character designers. You will use the most current techniques for converting character ideas into fully animatable characters including digital sculpting, retopology, photogrammetry and 3D scanning.
