4. SEMESTER

ADVANCED TOPICS & VIRTUAL PRODUCTION

The fourth semester continues expanding on your advanced knowledge and skillsets focusing on advanced character animation, complex rigging systems, node-based systems, and scripting. The format is the same as in 3rd semester, with mainly seasoned industry professionals as guest teachers.

The semester also includes an advanced virtual film production, with focus on multi-disciplinary collaboration, usually done together with an external partner, e.g. The National Film School of Denmark, or The Norwegian Film School.

At the end of the semester, you will have a three-week individual assignment, where you focus on one of the topics taught during the 3rd or 4th semester. This is an exciting option to emerge yourself in a topic that has your special interest, and functions as a mini thesis, preparing you for the 6th semester thesis.

  • Dig deeper into character animation and motion capture.
  • Learn to rig, script, and advance your knowledge of node-based systems.
  • Work with next gen film tools in a virtual production while building a network with the future film producers and directors.
  • Start your specialization focus through the mini-thesis.
