Computer Animation

Launch your career in high-end 3D computer animation.

Sheridan's program has launched many prominent careers while breaking new ground in the entertainment, advertising and gaming industries.

More than an animation school

Sheridan's world-renowned Computer Animation program has been stocking Hollywood with talent since the 1980s. We were the first animation school to begin teaching computer animation. At Sheridan you'll learn to communicate, using computer animation as your instrument.

Intensive hands-on training

Over eight months you’ll work with the same high-end 3D computer animation software, technology and techniques the professionals use — but you’ll also learn:

  • Animation principles and practices
  • Story structure
  • Character development
  • Character performance
  • Directing
  • Cinematography

A studio on campus

Sheridan's instructors are industry veterans who helped pioneer today's computer animation methods and tools. You'll work in a professional environment in the Sheridan Centre for Animation and Emerging Technologies (SCAET), surrounded by talented classmates and led by the best instructors. It's no wonder that Sheridan stands alone among computer animation schools.
