Learn how to bring your characters to life and find your own style to stand out in the industry

Animation is a profession that bases its secret on giving life and soul to a priori inanimate elements. This capacity generates a great connection between the animated character and the audience. Nowadays, 3D is a very consolidated technique that allows to navigate in a three-dimensional world in the image and likeness of the real one.

The program of the Master in Character Animation is focused on the animation of living beings, either people or animals, so that the students learn the different styles and techniques that exist. Beyond developing and perfecting their animation techniques, students will focus on developing their own style that will help them find their place in the professional world.
