    Hello Magsch,

    Generally speaking you would want to have a creative portfolio showing off your work. A background in art, graphic design and possibly product design (CAD programs like solidworks) would be ideal as you will have the right skills to advance to animation. Animation is a very technical course that requires you to sketch your ideas and utilize software like Mia and Cinema 4D to bring them to life.

    Your portfolio should show your passion and skills. Your work should cover the whole design process: from initial research, through concept development to the finished piece. At Ravensbourne we offer portfolio workshops you can attend for free for help with your showreel or portfolio as well as getting interview tips.

    You might want to check out our BA Animation course. Our students are taught by industry professionals and work closely with industry on briefs and collaborative work. You may want to consider popping by for an open day if you want to meet the tutors in person and get a better feel for the course. We are based in North Greenwich, London.


    If you have any questions feel free to ask,
    Michail
