Bring ideas to life; study Animation and Illustration at the University of Bolton

Art used to be about sketching still-life arrangements and painting landscapes and portraits. While fine art still exists, technology has enabled creative imaginations to be brought to life. Over the last few decades animation and illustration has advanced dramatically. Take a look at The Simpsons for example, in 1990 everything was in 2D, but you only have to take a look at recent episodes to see the dramatic changes in the animation and illustration world.

If you are aiming to build a career in the creative world, animation and illustration provide plenty of exciting job opportunities. Film and television production are one option, along with creating characters and scenes for video games, books and media advertising.

Could you be following in the footsteps of past students or leading animators such as Hayao Miyazaki and Jonas Mosesson? They are commissioned to work on music videos, interactive advertising, promotional campaigns, comics and special effects.
