Storytelling is key

An animator is a storyteller who brings a story to life in film. During the Animation Design course in Zwolle, you develop your own personal storytelling method. What are the stories that move us? When does an image acquire meaning for us? What remains fleeting? And how do you make a meaningful story? 
You develop ideas into stories, journalistic items and informative products. You are an author as well as a professional maker. This results in applied productions, such as commercials, user instructions, banners, informative items and animation films with your own chosen content. You learn to use the professional process to produce animation films. You develop subproducts, such as the scenario, characters, the storyboard and the moving storyboard. 
After graduating in Animation Design in Zwolle, you can work as an independent animator or for an agency.
