Animation & Video Games Courses Master's in Video Game Creative Director Master's level (2-year programme) Paris in French


This course is aimed mainly at students who completed the 2-D/3-D video game course. Il allows them to further develop their abilities in the following areas: 3-D animation, concept art, 3-D modeling, rigging, lighting, shaders creation, VFX, level design, scripting, game design.

The approach of video games as designed by this course at LISAA implies that the students learn about techniques that will allow them to create Physically Based Rendering (PBR) used in AAA video games productions.

Students further their skills in directing, development of realist shaders, software use (Substance, Maya...) and Unreal engine, combining 2-D and 3-D techniques for complex projects and optimising a production schedule. This approach leads to an in-depth knowledge of the entire pipeline for 3-D video game production.

The Game Creative Director course takes place over two years following a bachelor-level qualification in Video Games from LISAA. It is also open to students from other digital animation schools. The course takes place in French except some classes taught in English.
