1st Year: Mobile Devices

During this first year, students will be introduced to 3D in a practical and effective way, working both indoor and outdoor environments in low poly, the creation of characters and props, and the first VFX for mobile quality video games.

As a result of this first year students will be able to make all kinds of graphics for mobile platforms, publishing their first game as a group in the PlayStore and AppStore.

2nd Year: Consoles and PC

In the second year, students begin their graphics work for larger platforms (PC) by learning to work in high poly modeling for both advanced indoor and outdoor environments, creating complex characters, and using new tools such as Zbrush, Substance Painter and Designer.

As a result of this school year, they will publish a PC game as a group on the usual download platforms.

3rd Year: PC, AAA and Virtual Reality

In this final year, students will work on the creation of advanced characters (creatures), advanced environments and cinematics for VR, photogrammetry and visual effects for videogames with Houdini.

At the end of the training, each student will carry out their own personal project that, together with their demo reel, will be their calling card within the industry.

  • Environment artist
  • Character artist
  • 3D modeler
  • Graphic designer for videogames
  • Virtual reality specialist
  • Virtual reality technician

This course is the most specialized training with the best level of results in 3D art for videogames nationwide. In it, you will learn in depth how to work with methodologies and professional pipelines, to master 3D creation tools (3DSMax, Substance Painter and Designer and ZBrush) and their integration into standard videogame engines (Unreal Engine and Unity3D).

From day one, you will develop individual and group projects achieving results of a quality similar to that of the latest titles published by the national and international industry, with the aim of achieving a professional demo reel that will open doors to the job market. You will be trained as a graphic artist specialized in the design and creation of 3D video games, which will allow you to create full videogame visuals (indoor and outdoor environments, characters and props) for mobile phones and for AAA and Virtual Reality, while generating a professional demo reel to kickstart your career both nationally and internationally.

E-Sports Program

E-Sports is a discipline that consists of the practice of playing videogames at a competitive level, through leagues and tournaments. E-Sports are enjoying their finest hour in terms of recognition, investment and relevance.

FX ANIMATION is a pioneer school in incorporating E-Sports into academic life; one of the main objectives of the program is that students can play, enjoy and compete in videogames in a safe and controlled environment under the guidance of specialized trainers.

In the United States, educators and researchers affirm that this type of tournament is directly related to commitment and academic success and consequently, it reports very positive effects on learning and personal growth.

E-Sports are considered to be a highly effective tool to contribute to the development of the professional and individual competences and to promote cooperative work in the most innovative and cutting-edge classrooms and training centers such as FX ANIMATION.

Development of cognitive and interpersonal skills through E-Sports:

  • Critical and strategic thinking
  • Involvement and responsibility
  • Solving complex problems
  • Managing emotions
  • Performing under pressure
  • Communication and cooperation
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Creativity and initiative
