Pour your creative ideas and your technical skills into a dynamic career in the fast evolving field of 3D animation where your chances to progress are only as limited as your imagination. The rapid advancement in computer technology, combined with skyrocketing global demand for animated entertainment, cable and satellite TV, and the Internet, has led to a surge in career opportunities for those who have the expertise to tell effective stories and create compelling digital characters and worlds in 3D.
You can steer your 3D animation career into the film animation industry. According to box office statistics for 2014, four of the top 10 grossing movies were strictly animated films - and that does not take into account that all top 10 movies contain computer-generated imagery (CGI). Another significant source of employment for animators is the video game industry.
Enjoy the excitement of a vibrant industry where innovation rules, new ideas are appreciated and opportunities for advancement are plenty. Apply your talent, skills and ingenuity to creating everything from special effects for live-action and animated films to broadcast graphics for games, television and commercials.
