Learn 3D generalist skills in animation, modeling, lighting, compositing and rendering. Emphasis is on the development of strong fundamentals in both visual skills and software such asd Photoshop, Maya, Nuke, Zbrush etc.




Students will start one of the 2 specializations: Animation, or Visual Effects, with Modeling as a core specialisation for all students. Go in depth into production techniques based on actual industry workflow and processes used in next-gen games and feature films.




Learn advanced 3D techniques, and apply it towards a real-world production pipeline through individual and group projects. Complete final projects and produce a demo reel, your key to getting hired in the industry.



The curriculum delves in-depth to allow students to gain the artistic and technical skills for high-end 3D digital productions. After month 4, students will choose from one of three specialization tracks.


Character Animation

Focus on Disney style, executing the acting performance of digital characters, from acting and advanced body mechanics to creature animation.

Visual Effects

Create visual phenomenon with fluid simulations and rigid body dynamics, as well as composite footage with CG elements to create a cinematic look.


Create cinematic assets with hi end applications, focusing on delivering the most photorealistic outcomes.

Learn from industry leaders

Be mentored by top professionals with years of experience working at studios such as Ubisoft,Bandai Namco,dISNEYWeta DigitalLucasfilm.

CAREER opportunities

Computer Graphics artists are instrumental in creating the photo-realistic worlds and mind-bending visuals in blockbuster movies and games, from building 3D assets, animating to final compositing and effects. They are also increasingly sought-after in industries including advertising, virtual-reality, simulations and industrial design.

3D GeneralistS
work on various aspects in a production process within a studio. They are usually equipped with skills in areas like VFX, Modeling as well a good grasp of animation. These artists are very sought after in the industry as they are versatile in their skills and are also adaptable to different production aspects.
3D Modelers / GAME ARTISTS
create the visual elements of a game or film, such as characters, scenery, objects, vehicles, surface textures, clothing, props, and even user interface components. They also create concept art and storyboards which help communicate the proposed visual elements during the pre-production phase.
Technical Directors
are problem solvers in a production process. They are usually more technically savvy, but with a keen sense of aesthetics. These artists are very valuable in a production as they will not only solve production issues, but also writing tools such as texture shaders, lighting setup or even scripts to improve production processes.
Character Animators
are artists who have a good sense of rhythm. They create the illusion of life into inanimate objects, making them move believably. Similar to a puppet master, an animator manipulates a 3D model character and breathes life into them. Making these assets, talk, dance run, cry, laugh and joke, animators are one of the most essential parts of the production process.
are VFX artists who work with other artists to assemble a scene or a shot. These artists work with layers upon layers of shot assets, and put them altogether to achieve the final cinematic look. Compositors typically have a strong artistic sense in order to create the look that directors requires.
are artists who have a sensitive eye for motion. These artists work on a frame-by-frame level on film. Their role is to prepare VFX shots so that CG elements can be placed realistically onto each shot, seamlessly.




"...Today, some of their alumni play a pivotal role in Polygon Pictures' studios in Japan and Malaysia. I look forward to the continuous flow of talented graduates to come out from 3dsense, and what's more, I look forward to working with them!"
