Animation Courses

Kick start your career in digital media with AIT’s industry focussed animation courses!

Some of our greatest cultural heroes exist only as drawings moving across screens, making us laugh and think. Within this specialisation, you will learn the necessary skills to create animated heroes of your own – and more. Beyond the film and television blockbusters, animation is a big deal in the online world, advertising and games, as well as diverse fields like architecture, where more clients are asking for explorable 3D models of their unbuilt structures.

Across AIT’s industry-recognised range of practical subjects, you will learn to create characters and bring them to life in a virtual world. You’ll hone your craft, fine-tuning as you pick up new skills and exchange knowledge with your classmates.

Master classic and modern techniques in these comprehensive animation courses, which cover both 2D and 3D animation. Gain a solid understanding of the principles of storytelling. Learn the rich and engaging history of animation, and be comfortable working on a wide range of industry-standard programs.

Using these important skills, you will also build your own portfolio and showreel to demonstrate your technical and creative abilities in this fun, interactive art form. The applications are limited only by your imagination!

Careers in Animation

Even if your ultimate dream is to work for a big production company like Disney, there are a multitude of steps along the way that will build your skills and portfolio, as well as putting some money in your pocket and introducing you to some of the most passionate workers in the world.

In Australia alone, there are a range of independent animation companies that produce cartoons for the local market. Head overseas and you’ll find the number of opportunities to work in a studio increases, especially if you have picked up different techniques – in both 2D and 3D – along your journey so far.
