This new undergraduate course in Character & Creature Creation builds on our highly successful MA in Character & Creature Creation, which has been running for a couple of years now.

Create Your Own Characters
Students will learn the character creation pipeline from concept to implementation, developing models, character rigs and FX.  This will require work at all points in the production pipeline, including technical simulations of muscles, cloth and fur.
Creative & tech Skills
Students will learn work in and support teams in both technical and artistic capacities across different outputs such as complex character simulations, and real-time and interactive production environments, such as virtual reality and other forms of interactive entertainment. They will also contribute to the many award-winning film projects created at Escape Studios.

Applications are open now until 25th January and students can apply via UCAS.
