I am extremely interested in completing an animation course, particularly looking into building the skeletons etc.
However, I don't want to dive into a degree as yet, as this will be a complete career change for me ( comming from a science work background, as well having studied physiotherapy for 2 years- my knowledge in human anatomy will definetely come in handy :) ), so I want to ensure that this is definetely the career path I will passionately follow before I do endevour in a degree.
Therefore, I am interested in completing a lower level course. I am looking to find the best/highly recommended course in Sydney, anywhere from a certificate I-IV, even diploma. I have been reading into AIE, QANTM ( where my partner is looking to do the Games Design Degree ) and the Tafe Design Centre at Enmore...
Any advice, or assistance would be much appreciated.
Im currently at AIE Melbourne. They cover everything you need to know about the 3d industry in the first year from modeling - texturing- rigging - animating and rendering. And then in the second year they focus things a bit more depending what you want to do. I cant speak for the Sydney campus but if it is like the Melbourne one then it would get my recommendation. I have done a adv dip of multimedia at a place called IDEA and a bachelor of design multimedia at Swinburne and I can safely say that I have learnt the most at AIE.
you should be warned that this is a VERY difficult industry to get into
Hope this helps
