"The course gave me the knowledge and started me on a journey into animation that I hope to keep to for the rest of my life. I had been taught the principles of animation and a solid grounding in the history and theory behind it. To think if I hadn't been on the course I might have never learnt about many seminal works and artists/studios including Norman McLaren, UPA, and many others! Since I've graduated I've seen the standard of students work become higher and higher, which is only going to be a good thing for Manchester, the North West and the UK animation industry."
