MA Animation

Course Description


Create, explore and play with 3D digital, 2D and 2.5D animation processes in combination with more traditional analogue technologies, changing how you make, understand and experience animation. MA Animation at LCC gives you the chance to develop a personal practice that understands animation, in multiple forms, address multiple situations and help you develop innovative approaches driven by critical understanding and experimental production.


Animation at LCC is taught as a broad and experimental visual practice in the context of communication design. With new technologies changing how we make, understand and experience animation, students are encouraged to test boundaries and look at animation in many forms and in many ways.

MA Animation explores both the theory and practice of animation aiming to give you the tools to be able to express creative ideas using a broad range of experimental visual media. You will investigate the production of animation in an era with unparalleled opportunities for skilled visual communicators.
