Many companies want their customers to step into their world – that’s where a good animator comes in. Your skills give people the chance to explore, experience and learn more about a company. Animation is used in many different industries beyond entertainment and getting a great education from Cogswell College can teach you the skills you need.
Are you curious by nature or been known to take things apart just to see if you can put it back together? Then you might have a knack for mechanical animation. Mechanical animation can be found in almost any industry – from the auto industry creating auto simulations to the small appliance industry providing a demo on how a product works. Creating these things digitally gives consumers life-like simulations and lets them truly experience a product.
Are you more interested in visually wandering through a landscape during the planning and designing phase? Then landscape or architectural animation may be a better fit for you. It used to be that landscaping and architecture renderings were all hand drawn, static images before bringing the project to life. But in recent years with the advances in technology, it makes much more sense to have digital, interactive animations of the environment. Architecture, landscaping and interior design are very different from how people expect to use their animation skills but are still very rewarding careers that you might find far more suited to your tastes. The base skill sets aren’t much different; it’s how you apply them that drives the career.
Cogswell’s Digital Arts and Animation degree program can prepare you for a career in animation and will teach you the skills needed to take your career in any number of different directions. The “craft” of animation plays a major role in our education program and will help you succeed no matter what career path you wish to take.
