Animation - 3D


Advanced Diploma


Program Code: AN311

Campus: North

Length: 6 semesters starting in September

In Humber’s Animation 3D advanced diploma program, you will develop a well-rounded knowledge base and skillset that includes strong art, animation, modelling and visualization abilities. You will be prepared for the ever-expanding 3D art field with a thorough understanding of the latest 3D digital art technologies in a program developed with the input of industry advisors. Learn to work like the pros do — using the same 3D animation software and tools to render creative thoughts into compelling images and fully realized design.

This program will allow you to develop a blend of the most relevant digital and analog art skills, as well as an understanding of creative and technological processes. A full understanding of art and design theories will help you draw, visualize and apply colour principles to create appealing work. You will also gain a mastery in adhering to a pipeline as you develop content across courses. Teamwork is also emphasized as you collaborate with students from other programs to better simulate a studio/production environment.​

Learn to go beyond beautiful surfaces and moving objects to get to the heart of 3D art and animation — involving narratives that capture the imagination of your audience.​
