Are you created to create?
The Boss Baby, Smurfs: The Lost Village, Ferdinand, The Lego Movie, The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, Mass Effect: Andromeda ... Animation is everywhere and it’s getting better every year.
Graduates from HU Arizona find jobs as animators at Studios Like Disney, Riot Games & TTP, and as artists and marketers at Consumer Direct INC and The RealReal.
From motion graphics to 3D Sculpting, animation is at the forefront of our visual culture. If you find yourself laying awake at night dreaming of that next project, you’ll find an avenue for those creative talents right here at HUAZ.
HUAZ animated films have received national acclaim & garnered numerous awards including 8 Rocky Mountain Emmys and many of which were developed by first time filmmakers.
As an animation student you will be immersed in this expanding art form. You’ll study the foundation of art while exploring and surrounding yourself with what animation is and what it can do. You will be taught the skills needed to not merely survive in this culture, but to thrive.
"In a time where more content is created daily than ever before, the one factor that has helped creators stand out is the quality of their visuals and storytelling. With HUAZ's record 4 Animation wins at BEA this year, this serves as a strong indicator that people resonate with the stories being told here and that the work our students are making remains of excellent quality. HUAZ remains dedicated to creating projects that are not only enjoyable, but have helped advance numerous artist's careers."
"What sets Huntington apart from other universities is the environment. I instantly felt at home and I enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with passionate peers."
"HU gives students, like myself, an opportunity to receive what is most valuable: personal guidance on projects, constructive criticism, and a strong sense of a caring community."
