Animation film in Genk

Academische Bachelor / Exchange Programme

Our degree welcomes engaged and critical students who want to develop professional all round level skills in Animation. We provide an energetic team of lecturers (almost all renowned professionals) who maintain warm and personal contact with students.
By means of intensive individual coaching, we encourage our students to explore their interests and to become an innovator in the style(s) that match their abilities.

In the first year we provide a strong basis in the most important animation film techniques (2D, 3D, stop motion), and skills (screenwriting, storyboarding, animation, sound design, postproduction, ...). During later years we expect our students to become researchers, who pursue a personal trajectory within a chosen style, and who are able to express their view on society and the world.
