Animation Studios

We have dedicated filming spaces for stop motion model photography, equipped with professional lighting rigs, and DMX systems that allow integration with DragonFrame capture software.

Students have access to a range of equipment including DSLR cameras and lenses, tripods, blue and green screen setups and rigging equipment, a facial performance capture system, as well as model making tools and materials. In addition to the Digital Print Studio resources,  which cover 3D printing, laser cutting, vinyl and fabric printing, Animation also has its own 3D printers.

There is a prerequisite for students to attend a technical induction prior to permission being granted to use these resources.

Please note that these studios are used for scheduled teaching activities. The studios are available for authorised students to use outside of these times for individual or small group study purposes.

Use of the studios by others is by special arrangement which is usually attained by the provision of a demonstrable rationale for the use of the resources contained within this facility that directly supports their course of study. This may require a referral from an academic tutor. Subsequently, if approved, you will be required to attend a facility induction run by technical staff.

Where possible and with prior arrangement, staff will work flexibly during the working day to accommodate specific support requirements which do not fit into the specified timetable.
