3D Animation

Everything is in 3D now days, you can’t go to the movies without seeing those silly 3D glasses!  With a career in 3D animation, you can utilize your skills and be in high demand.  3D animation is a type of animation that uses computer-generated images to create animated scenes.  A career in 3D animation involves creating 3D moving images using computer software. These images are made with the use of digital models. After the models have been created, details are added, like hair, clothing, skin, grass, trees, and any other items that completes a scene.  Large animation studios sometimes hire students who have earned degrees in 3D animation, so you could see your work on the big screen!
