Advance Integrated Animation
To master the art and technique of animation, be it 2D or 3D, students start with solid foundation. The Foundation at Black Box Academy of Art and Technology commences by providing an introduction to Sketching which then transitions to 2D animation principles and visual development through our widely acclaimed Black Box Foundation Programme. 
Students' progress to advanced computer based animation and digital art using Industry standard 3D software tools. 
The course culminates in workshops conducted in Stop Motion and students then learn to integrate the asset into Unreal Engine using Epic's free assets and assets created in Maya.
The course has been structured to reflect the variety of areas within the industry and blends creativity using cutting edge technology and is taught in an environment that closely reflects industrial practices with a professional set up.

After learning foundational art which includes the study of disciplines such as Storyboarding, Art Direction, Character Design the students proceed to specialize in 3D Animation.  This would involve exploring a variety of 3D disciplines such as 3D modelling ,  Lighting & Texturing , Rigging and 3D Animation. You will then, with the guidance of instructors and industry mentors, develop a complete animated short film, from concept development through the process of animation, lighting, texturing, rendering and sound. Animated showreel is the final step to your career as an Artist/Animator.
