The Animation programme provides learners between 10 and 18 years the opportunity to attend workshops run by Turnip Starfish, an industry specialist, at the University of South Wales, Treforest, during the school holidays, throughout the year. By working with industry experts and those who have studied animation at Higher Education, learners receive an insight into possible careers and University courses.
Animation workshops run throughout the academic year and culminate in the Animation Summer School, with a showing for friends and family; this allows learners to progress from one event to the next, should they wish.
Animation, games and visual effects has evolved and grown from a ‘bedroom industry’ to a position of major force within the entertainment media industry. The University of South Wales has graduates employed throughout the world with credits on blockbuster movies and computer games.
