LISAA Readjusts its Teaching to Meet the New Needs of Animation Professionals
LISAA trains professionals in 2-D & 3-D Animation and Special Effects, and renews its teaching to respond to the requirements of continually developing businesses and design studios. Starting in the academic year of 2017, the advanced course will become a five-year programme with the creation of a second year in Production Management & Digital Animation Techniques.
Bringing together technical and managerial skills
The Production Management & Digital Animation Techniques course will become a two-year course as of the 2017 academic year. It will allow students to acquire even more skills, which will in turn allow them to practice demanding technical professions and to obtain a master’s-level qualification.
"Animation studios are often looking for candidates that have an advanced level of technical skill as well as expertise in project and team management. We need two years to train them so meticulously," says Joan de Silva, director of LISAA Animation & Video Games Paris.
Entrepreneurship is strategic in the video games industry as our students want to turn their creations into success stories.

The school also invests in the development of student entrepreneurship. "Entrepreneurship is strategic in the video games industry as our students want to turn their creations into success stories." How do you set up a studio? How do you sell your project? There are so many skills for which LISAA supports its students.
Strengthening international exchanges
Finally, the Animation & Video Games School is strengthening its international partnerships in order to be able to offer even more rewarding exchanges to its students, who will be able to spend a semester at the University of Westminster in London, for example. In exchange, LISAA will welcome foreign exchange students for a semester. Other partnerships are being finalised with European universities.
