Technical directors within the animation and games industries often have to work alongside computer animators and resolve technical problems either by configuring existing software tools or designing new tools.
During your year-long study, you will develop your programming and scripting skills, and become familiar with special techniques and tools associated with computer animation. These skills are assessed in a variety of projects you will undertake during the year. Emphasis is placed on the use of industry standard hardware and software in the development of these techniques.
