The 3D Modeling Animation & Design - NTL.0Z program focuses on providing graduates with a solid foundation in the technical and artistic skills needed to be successful in the game, animation and CGI industries. Key to this is a genuine understanding of storytelling, game design, game play, modeling and animation techniques. Students will also acquire a solid foundation in traditional artistic techniques. Colour theory, design fundamentals and life drawing will be taught and students will apply this knowledge to the production and animation of characters, lighting, texturing, layout and design. Students will be able to apply industry standard software tools and techniques to production processes. All graduates will build an industry standard portfolio throughout their studies at CDI College. The 3D Modeling Animation & Design program prepares graduates for careers in a variety of CGI based industries. Graduates of the program will find employment in computer animation studios, game development companies, post production and special effects studios. They may also work for industrial design firms, software producers or any other company that requires the productions of 3D graphics and animation.
