As Toronto’s animation scene heats up, animators will be in high demand
Toronto, ON – November 23, 2012 – Inspired by the growth of Ontario’s gaming and video effects industries, CDI College has developed a 3D Modeling Animation Art and Design program that will train students in Toronto for careers in animation and CGI.
“In recent years Toronto has become a major centre for the visual effects, animation and post-production industries,” says Larry Heinzlmeir, VP of Marketing for CDI College. “This fuels the demand for professionals who have the right combination of imagination and technical skills needed to work on a range of creative projects. The 3D Modeling Animation Art and Design program targets the essential skill set graduates need to be successful in the industry.”
The 3D Modeling Animation Art and Design program is designed to give students a solid foundation in the technical and artistic skills needed to excel in the 3D modeling, animation and CGI industries. With instruction from industry-experienced professionals, they’ll study colour theory, design fundamentals and life drawing. They’ll learn about a range of techniques such as lighting, texturing, character animation and layout and design. The program also teaches them how to apply industry-standard software tools and techniques to the production process.
By the end of the program, students will possess a professional portfolio that highlights their skills and strengths for potential employers. Graduates will be able to apply for jobs with computer animation studios, industrial design firms, special effects and post-production studios and software producers. Graduates will also be suited for positions with video game design companies and game development studios.
CDI College is accepting applications for the 3D Modeling Animation Art and Design program at its Toronto campus. For more information, call 1.877.404.4353 or fill out the form on the right.
