The objective of the programme is to train animation artists, directors, designers. Graduates from the training programme are capable of developing animated contents, films, series, may act as creative producers of motion picture, communication and interactive applications using animation. Their skills, knowledge and experience obtained during the course make students compentent in selecting and managing professionals (figure designers, animators, set designers, etc) for diverse productions as well as in directing and in managing creative pre-production and production-related processes. During the four semesters of the MA programme students develop animation projects through which they obtain indispensable filming and animating skills for designing and creating animated art objects. The Department has a strong network of active international relations, which gives students a wide range of opportunities to visit special training courses and international workshops in foreign partner institutions. An extra-curricular activity is to visit festivals representing animated film art, which provides students with a direct link to dominant artistic tendencies in the genre. MA students make a film as their diploma project, whose topic, content and form are all to be developed by the students on their own. The university manages the diploma films as its own productions, it takes over all tasks concerning the production and the nomination of diploma films for festivals, thus helping students in starting their career.
