Animation Awakened Showcase M.A. 3D Animation for Film & Games | 3rd semester
Finally, the application phase for all B.A. and M.A. study programs has started! As we eagerly await the first warm days of spring and the approaching summer term, we want to take the time and reflect on some of last semester’s projects.
The third semester students of the M.A. 3D Animation for Film & Games explored a wide range of animation forms during winter term: games, VR, stop motion, 3D animated films – you name it. The results of their hard work were showcased on-site at CGL, and we loved them so much that we decided to highlight some of them here to give them the attention they deserve!
If these projects make you curious about pursuing a degree in animation yourself, look at our course description. The MA 3D Animation for Film & Games application phase is open until March 31, 2023! The same deadline goes for all other study programs. Apply now!
