Animation & Video Games Courses Master Supervisor & Director Animation & Special Effects Master's level (2-year programme) Paris in French


This course allows each student to further their skills in the following fields: production direction, story board, directing, concept art, layout, modelling, rigging, animation, matte painting, lighting, rendering, VFX and compositing.

Developing one's skills

Students develop their skills in directing, use of software, combining 2-D and 3-D techniques for complex projects and optimizing production calendar management. This approach leads to an in-depth knowledge of the entire production pipeline for 3-D animated films.

Furthermore, it allows students from a 2-D background to learn 3-D tools, and for those from a real-time background to gain experience in staging and in precalculated 3-D.

A 2 years degree at master's level

The course in Production Management and Digital Animation Techniques takes place over 2 years following a BAC+3 year qualification at LISAA in 2-D Animation, 3-D Animation, VFX or 2-D/3-D Video Games. It is also open to graduates from other digital animation schools.

I do traditional digital animation. It requires focus and continuous learning. It's hard but it's so rewarding to create something!
