What you will learn
Upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to:
- Explore the interdependencies between people and processes within studio organizations.
- Learn the principles and practice of management and leadership as these specifically relate to the world of animation and VFX and the production pipeline.
- Hone your scheduling documentation and presentation skills, while learning how to incorporate the needs of diverse audiences and stakeholders.
