Estonian Academy of Arts is offering a 2-year Master of Animation programme to postgraduate students interested in animation directing and filmmaking.

If you are an ambitious and determined artist, with the talent, motivation and desire to create unique work, form new directions and realise your career aspirations as an animation director, this course is ideal. The course combines several disciplines e.g. animation, scriptwriting, history of animation and media theory, making the background of this MA programme trans-disciplinary.

The coursework mainly concentrates on classical and experimental techniques i.e. drawing animation, stop motion, cut-outs, sand animation, painting under the camera etc. In the professional sense, students will direct and produce animated films.

An important part of the study are collaboration projects with local companies and organisations. The programme has a unique teaching and learning framework where students receive abundant individual attention and mentoring from highly experienced animation professionals.
