Animated Image Designer
Our students work on the whole production chain of a film, irrespective of whether it is produced using traditional animation (stop motion, 2D) or digital animation.
Our teaching programme is reviewed yearly in order for the lessons to be adapted to meet the needs of the different professional fields.
All lessons are delivered by experienced professionals from the Image industry (MacGuff, Ubisoft, Ellipsanime and others). The quality of training mainly rests on their professional experience and the pragmatism of their teaching, which enables them to convey the art of the profession to each of the students. Beyond the technical knowledge acquired, this dynamic teaching contributes to the development of the student and the individuality of the school.
