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.
Effects Artist is one of the four specializations within the subject area Animation. Students who choose the specialization Effects Artist have the possibility to pursue their paths as VFX Artist, VFX Supervisor or Effects Director.
The structure of Animation project studies is based on the production of animation and VFX projects and divided into five production stages. At the end of each stage the students have to achieve specific milestones to ensure that the project can enter the next phase. Throughout the different phases production teams are supervised by visiting lecturers. The Head of Production and the project coordinators mentor the project process.
