This course allows each student to further their skills in the following fields: production direction, storyboard, directing, concept art, layout, modelling, rigging, animation, matte painting, lighting, rendering, VFX and compositing.

Students develop their skills in directing, use of software, combining 2-D and 3-D techniques for complex projects and optimizing production calendar management. This approach leads to an in-depth knowledge of the entire production pipeline for 3-D animated films. Furthermore, it allows students from a 2-D background to learn 3-D tools, and for those with a real-time background to gain experience in staging and in precalculated 3-D.

The course in Production Management and Digital Animation Techniques takes place over one year following a BAC+3 year qualification at LISAA in 2-D Animation, 3-D Animation, VFX, 2-D Video Games or 3-D Video Games. It is also open to graduates from other digital animation schools.
