3D Design Courses

Craft memorable 3D Digital experiences

Learn techniques in 3D modelling, digital sculpting, rigging and surfacing to create creatures from your imagination - then apply performance animation to bring them to life. Take your career to the next level through digital storytelling: create your own 3D animations, short films & games.

About This Course

As technology advances, the industry need for a qualified 3D artist grows. 3D content is used to tell stories, create characters and portray digital worlds that otherwise can only be imagined. 3D artists work in film, television, advertising, and video game production. 3D software such as ZBrush, Maya and 3ds Max will be the tools at your disposal. Along the way, you will learn to create content for the exciting growing industries of virtual reality, augmented reality, and visual effects. 3D Design ensures students have a solid grounding in all aspects of 3D including modelling, texturing, animation and rigging. It will introduce students to the 3D pipeline, the use of multiple software and a wide range of skills.

Careers in 3D Animation

What journey lies ahead?

Even if your ultimate dream is to work for a big production company like Disney, there are a multitude of steps along the way that will build your skills and portfolio, as well as putting some money in your pocket and introducing you to some of the most passionate workers in the world. In Australia alone, there are a range of independent companies that produce animations for the local market. Head overseas and you’ll find the number of opportunities to work in a studio increases, especially if you have picked up different techniques – in both 2D and 3D – along your journey so far.
