2nd year animation course

After the acquisition of basic knowledge, ECV students in Animation get to learn the fundamentals of animation and of digital creation. They study illustration, the creation of universes and characters in either two or three dimensions. They will also be familiarising themselves with 3D techniques, from video, to image processing and motion capture in order to make their first animations.

This year will allow you to acquire a real methodology of work. Training is structured around practical projects allowing the appropriation of knowledge, the concrete acquisition of abilities as well as the development of a particular artistic identity. Throughout the 2nd year, students will produce, as a team, a 2D animation and motion design short-film, carried out as a semester project.

3rd year animation course

During the 3rd year, each student individually produces an animation short film, allowing him to comprehend the full chain of production which is can be broken down to three phases: pre-production, production, and post-production.

  • Pre-production: pre-production allows the assessment of the creative project, the development of the script, the visual content, the storyboard, and the 2D or 3D animation.
  • Production: production will materialise the project, through modelling, setup, animation, lighting, etc.
  • Post-production: last part of the project, post-production leads to the final outcome of the piece, through special effects, compositing, editing, sound design and sound mix

The creative dimension of the students work is supported by the elaboration of an animation project or of a demo reel.
At the end of this year, students confront themselves with professional reality with an internship. An necessary experience at this stage of the course.


When I was shown the Bachelor’s degree in 2D/3D Animation during an open day, it just clicked for me. At that moment, I knew that was what I wanted to do !
