    In the Digital Animation bachelor we explore all the traditional animation techniques (painting, sand, cut-outs, puppets, stopmotion...) and also 2D and 3D so that the student can express himself through them, either in an experimental, documentary or fictional way. Digital Animation students are encouraged to explore techniques or combinations of techniques to find a new look or a new approach on a theme or a story. The Digital Animation course is designed from the stages of making a film, where each stage offers a competence and a domain of expertise.
