We're creating the future, one frame at a time...

Bringing a character to life involves more than just technical ability. With that in mind, Animation at JMC has been developed in association with studio professionals from Pixar and Animal Logic, and is born of a love affair between technology, creativity and science. 

Underpinned by a strong understanding of design, filmmaking and compelling storytelling, this course introduces you to the art and practice of animation. Learn to design and develop characters and worlds – from concept to finished art – and create arresting graphical motion and believable character performances. 

We’ll make sure you are up to speed on all the latest developments demanded by the industry, you'll have a chance to intern, network and study abroad along the way. You'll graduate with a top notch portfolio, a showreel, and knowledge of who’s who where it counts, ready to launch into the industry.
