Animation College New Zealand

Private Training Establishment

Animation College, previously known as Freelance Animation School was established in 1989 and has built a solid reputation since then as New Zealand’s character animation specialist. Our curriculum emphasises true character animation. No matter whether you chose to specialise in 2D or 3D, the principles of great animation remain the same. At Animation College you’ll learn how to create characters that convey real emotions, mimic life, and evoke empathy in the viewer. You’ll also learn to tell stories that inspire, influence and entertain. Once learned, you’ll have those skills for life and will find that they are transferable to any software, medium, or technology you will encounter in the industry today or in years to come.
