The Animation study major is divided into two streams; foundation and project studies, both of which are two years in duration, whereby foundation studies are compulsory for all Film Academy students. Project studies at the Animationsinstitut allow students the opportunity to focus on their own projects, as well as specializing in a chosen study area.
Students specializing in the study stream AEP manage the production-related aspects of animation and effects projects. Hands-on training is at the core of AEP education, which is why the AEP curriculum is closely linked to other specializations. Selected classes on budgeting, scheduling, project management and team building, complement the course. Animation/Effects Producers are part of a core team that further consists of a Concept Artist, an Animation/Effects Director and a Technical Director - all projects at the Animationsinstitut are realized by a core team.
The specialization Animation/Effects Producer (AEP) allows students, who have already gained either professional experience as producers in the field of animated media, or have earned a respective university degree, lateral entry into the 3rd year of Animation studies.
AEP students are able to supervise and manage animation and effects projects as part of a team. This specialization is also open to applications from Production students at the Filmakademie who would like to specialize as Animation/Effects Producers after having completed their basic studies.
