Explore your passion for film, animation and games design
We’re preparing the next generation of filmmakers, animators and game designers for creative and exciting careers within the international business of film, television and digital screen media production.
Learn from expert industry practitioners and academics, teaching cutting-edge creation for multimedia and digital game development, 2D and 3D animation and effects and screen production.
Open Day done differently
See Griffith up close without leaving home, with 24/7 access to our interactive online event. On now to 1 October.
Participants will choose a study area of focus:
Participants will gain insights into the whole animation creation process. Participants will explore all stages of production – from ideation and storyboarding, through to selecting media (2D/3D), editing, sound and export and produce their own animation using the stop-motion technique.
Participants will gain insights into how films are made, inducing the basics of visual languages and how moving images are interpreted by audiences. In addition, participants will take part in all stages of pre-production, production and post-production in both cast and crew roles and have first-hand experience producing a live-action sequence.
