Pratt Digital Arts prepares and develops innovative artists through rigorous immersion in a diverse culture of excellence. Students pursue self-directed, multi-disciplinary projects in a state of the art facility guided by a faculty of accomplished working artists. Our concentrations in Interactive Arts, Digital Imaging and 3D Animation & Motion Arts emphasize experimentation and professionalism. Animation students create evocative narrative and non-narrative films using 2-D and 3-D digital animation techniques, live action and motion graphics. Recommended electives include history of animation, film criticism, traditional animation, character design, rigging, lighting and rendering, audio and video, compositing and special effects, and advanced digital animation techniques.
