Program description

Diploma of Creative Arts (3D Animation)

Bringing a character to life involves more than just technical ability. With that in mind, Animation at JMC has been developed in association with studio professionals from Pixar and Animal Logic, to help you tell your story from concept development to finished animation.

Introducing you to the art and practice of animation, this course allows you to specialise in your passion, be it story and art direction, 2D + 3D hybrid animation, technical art or a combination of them all.

We’ll make sure you are up to speed on all the latest developments demanded by the industry, you'll have a chance to intern, network and study abroad along the way. Graduate with a top-notch portfolio, a show reel, and knowledge of who’s who where it counts, to launch you into the industry.
