2D Animation Course at Herzing: What Can You Expect?

Mar 9, 2021 10:01:39 AM

Think you might want to pursue a career in 2D animation? Now is an excellent time to get started, especially in Ottawa.

There is so much animation work flowing through the city that studios can't find enough qualified people to meet production needs.

Some studios are so desperate for local talent that they are having to outsource work overseas.

That's why Herzing College created an accelerated 2D animation course. Our mission is to expand the local animation scene by producing skilled graduates who can fill those available studio jobs.

This program teaches the software and real animation skills you need to get hired - in just 12 months of training.

What makes Herzing's 2D animation course so unique? Here's what you can expect in class.

Herzing's Entire 2D Animation Class Hired By Big Jump Entertainment

Top animation studio, Big Jump Entertainment, has partnered with Herzing College to train and recruit talented 2D animation students.

A lot of people dream of a career in 2D animation, working on major TV shows and movies at a top animation studio. But they figure the industry is too hard to break into. There’s too much competition for great studio jobs and they’ll never get hired after investing in training. 

They feel pressured to choose another, less “risky” career path and give up on becoming an animator. Sound familiar?  

We recently started a 2D Animation program at Herzing because the exact opposite is true. There is actually a major shortage of skilled 2D animators in Ottawa.
