Want to bring great stories to life through titles and motion graphics? This unique 12 month course, delivered in partnership with Sky, will equip students with the skills required to become a film and television graphics designer. The course aims to enable students to become innovators in their field by combining practical experience on a range of TV shows, film and digital content with industry work experience placements and intensive training in photoshop, After Effects and Cinema 4D. A summer work placement at Sky is available to all students. Students will collaborate with those in other specialisms to make several films and practical projects – with all production costs met by the School. Working as a Motion Graphics and Titles Designer in film and television involves the creation of brand and design concepts that will be used in the design and production of graphics elements for TV channels, series, individual programmes, films and online promotions. Graphics and Titles professionals design and implement moving and stationary graphics used for branding and presentation of information. Working in After Effects and Cinema 4D they provide a wide kit of parts from titles, to moving image films and graphics stings for TV, films and online. To do this role, you will need to be an exceptional graphic designer with the ability to realise 2D and 3D designs through a variety of computer software packages – Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Cinema 4D. This course will help you develop these skills and much more. This course combines practical experience on TV Entertainment, Science and Natural History and Sports shows with industry work experience placements and intensive training.
A graphics design qualification at degree level is beneficial and a portfolio of graphics work is required. An interest in graphic design and motion graphics for television and an ability to work to deadlines as part of a team are essential. We are looking for people who can marry good design with moving image computer software skills. While many applicants will have a degree from a British or overseas university, we will consider applicants who do not have a degree if they have an impressive portfolio, a creative track record or an alternative qualification. If you are not an EEA National, you must already be in possession of a UK visa valid for the duration of this course. We are unable to accept your application if you do not.
