ANIMATION

FREE YOUR IMAGINATION!

Since 1988, Supinfocom has been creating high-level creatives perfectly suited to the 3D image industry, in the Animation and Digital Visual Effects sectors. To achieve this, RUBIKA relies on an innovative pedagogy, based on practice and polycompetence.

The Supinfocom program includes five years of apprenticeship and leads to the production of a short animated film, in real production conditions. Throughout their training, the students exercise their skills on practical projects, during which they will occupy several functions. This approach by the project is a valuable asset in their future career. At the end of the program, students master all stages of production of a 3D animation project: preproduction (scenario, storyboard, layout2d and 3D, graphic line), production (3D modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering, rigging , animation, FX / VFX, compositing), postproduction (calibration, sound, video editing).

Team productions and intensive weeks are systematically supervised by active professionals.

RECOGNIZED PRODUCTIONS

The short films of Supinfocom are acclaimed by professionals around the world , including the most prestigious animation festivals (MIFA Annecy, SIGGRAPH, ITFS Stuttgart ...).

A GROWTH MARKET

3D computer graphics is now present in many areas : animation, digital special effects, advertising, television, industrial design and video games. French animation also has real export success and employs more than 5,000 people a year.
