Potential Career Pathways

2D/3D Animation

Animation is the creation of a virtual world in which everything must be visualized and created from pure imagination. Everything within frame has scope, weight and meaning. Animators need to be able to visualize new worlds into being. 

A 2D Animator creates movement in a two-dimensional space for film, TV, websites, video games and advertisements using either traditional cel methods or computer software.

3D Modelers build and sculpt digital characters, props, machines, and environments — often referred to as “assets” — which are then rigged and animated by an Animator, or placed (as a stationary or simmed object) in a scene by a Layout Artist. They start with a brief or by gathering reference materials; often they are provided with concept art or a 3D scan of a prop, character or vehicle from the live-action shoot or a third party site. 

3D Modelling

Modelers are an exciting part of the creation experience. Modelers are responsible for helping to make a film or game more dynamic, adding personality and emotion to its characters, and building on the overall realism of the story. 

A Modelers skillset  include a mix of technical, creative skills, and interpersonal skills. An understanding of anatomy, zoology, and basic rigging and asset creation is also useful in this role. 

Employers are often searching for the following skills in an Modeler:

An understanding of form, colour and texture, and know how these elements work together 

Capacity to discern, interpret and follow reference material to create clean, detailed and accurate models

 

Game Environment

The role of the Environment Artist is an exciting and fulfilling one. The role is to create the backgrounds, layouts and environments within a film or game. Game environment artists use computer software to design and sculpt the 3D backdrop in which characters, vehicles, weapons, objects, etc operate and interact. 

The responsibilities of the Environment Artist may include:

Texturing and modeling elements

Liaising with various team members and key Lead Artist regarding the layout and style of environments within the film or game

Working from storyboards and concept art to develop environments

Researching references and resources for creation of backdrops

Creating prototypes and mock-ups in the early stages of production

Character Design​

A Character Artist specialises in the conceptualisation of characters for films, TV shows and games.

This includes the ability to imagine the character from different perspectives, showing action, anatomy and unique expressions that define the character and bring it to life.

Character Designers must excel in taking direction, visualising from abstract concepts and communicating their ideas. They produce the initial designs and set the tone for key imagery within a film or game.
