Announcing Establishment of “Animation College Rotorua”… Founder Barry Pearce

A bullet point introduction to Animation College Rotorua;

  1. I have included a copy of the prospects prepared for the Rotorua Campus as an attachment, so I will concentrate on highlighting the salient points here.
  2. How long has the school been operating? Animation College was established as a school in 2003, as a result of the directors of the animation studio “Freelance Animators Ltd” not being able to source enough skilled animators within New Zealand to work on production shows for international companies i.e. Warner Bros. and Disney.

What are the possible qualifications?

  • Freelance Diploma in Applied Animation level 6. In 2D or 3D..
  • Freelance Diploma in Digital Media (Animation Focussed) level 7. In 2D or 3D.
  • Batchelor of Animation level 7.
  • Batchelor of Animation with Honours level 8.
    • Within the two programmes, C and D a candidate can major in: Storyboard and Character, World building and visual effects, Interactive and Games.
