AEP students manage the production-related aspects of animation and effects projects. Hands-on training is at the core of AEP education, i.e. learning by doing - learning by working on projects. This is why the AEP curriculum is closely linked to other specializations. Selected classes on budgeting, scheduling, project management as well as problem-oriented, joined-up thinking complement the course. Animation/Effects Producers are part of a core team that further consists of a Concept Artist, an Animation/Effects Director and a Technical Director - every project at the Institute of Animation is realized by a core team.
The specialization Animation/Effects Producer (AEP) addresses lateral entry students into the 3rd year of the subject area Animation that have either already gained professional experience as producers in the field of animated media or own a respective college degree. AEP students are able to supervise and manage animation and effects projects as part of a team. This specialization is also open to applications from Production students at the Filmakademie that would like to specialize as Animation/Effects Producers after having completed their basic studies.
