Animation is a thriving medium and developing at a greater pace than ever before. Animation has become part of mass culture, and one of its principal forms. Animation can be seen in digital screen graphics, computer games, music videos, films, etc. The basis for any film – including animated film – is the story. The greatest problem in the film world is the lack of good stories. In most of the world’s animation schools, students are not taught the art of good story writing. This is something that sets the Academy’s Department of Animation apart. We place an emphasis on the story and teach Prof. Pärn’s unique methodology for creating film scripts.
Upon completion of the MA in Animation programme, students have acquired in-depth theoretical and practical animation skills. The students can specialise in specific animation techniques and create individual postgraduate projects in the appropriate technique. This is an international undergraduate programme, and instruction is conducted in English.
After graduation, the students are qualified to realise themselves as animated film creators, or as professionals in their field, on the cultural landscape; to teach in their field or to be involved in creative industries. Students who have completed the postgraduate programme are also qualified to continue their studies and pursue a doctoral degree.
