Best Distance learning Course Studies in Design 2017. During the first year of 3D Film Production you learn the 3D crafts, and the second year teaches you to make captivating 3D films. When producing a 3D film, you will be using software and 3D characters instead of film cameras and actors. First year - The 3D craft The first year of 3D Film Production is identical to 3D Design and Animation. You can still apply directly for this two-year study program; 3D Film Production. To be good at something you need continuous training, and 3D Design and Animation is no exception. In this course we start building, or modeling, very simple objects in 3D. We then texturize, or paint these objects, before finally lighting and completing them. Thereafter, it is back to modeling again, but this time with greater complexity. Again, we do more texturing and lighting, and we also increase the levels of detail and complexity. The same process is repeated over and over again, but with even more refinement each time. That way, we are able to slowly but surely, progress from the production a simple object like a cup, on to more complicated objects, such as a human figure. The next challenge is to construct these characters’ movements in a manner that is believable. Once more, the aim is to strive towards greater complexity as we focus on advanced 3D figures of human beings. If you are able to sculpt a human, you can basically create anything in 3D. 3D is a mixture of both technical knowledge and artistic abilities. This is highly emphasized at Noroff, and we therefore facilitate our training to include both design skills and technical competency. It will be expected that you complete several drawing exercises on paper, and your software as well as technical skills must also be proficient. The assignments in 3D Design and Animation have an objective to simulate real-life challenges that awaits in the industry, and by so prepare you for immediate employment and production after graduation. Second Year - Produce an animated short film Since the dawn of time, storytelling has been part of what it means to be human, and what it mens to be creative and thinking beings. In all storytelling, there is a common structure, with certain variations depending on genre. If you have seen one romantic comedy, you know that a conflict will present itself before the second half, but you also know the story will have a happy ending. If you have read Norwegian fairy tales, you know that the first and second brother will not get the princess, but the third will succeed and win half the kingdom. You will learn the structure of various genres in both short and feature films, and be able to identify the structure and the basic plot elements in a movie. Once you understand these genres, you can draw ideas from any film, in creating your own story. Conceptualization In this study program, you will learn to work with all phases of production, from idea to finished film. When you finish the script, you will create a storyboard, then animate pre-visualizations, before moving on to principal and post production. An all 3D film has no real actors to instruct. It's your job to bring the 3D characters to life. Our minds are experts in reading body language, and if an animation is done poorly, we will notice something wrong, and the magic of the animation is lost. The audience may not be able to pinpoint the error, other than sensing that something is wrong. You, however, will gain knowledge of human anatomy, body language and facial expressions, and thereby be able to make your characters behave in the way that they should. Facial expressions and lip-sync The human has over forty muscles, and our brains aree experts on interpreting various facial expressions. A large portion of digital acting is to make use of our knowledge of facial anatomy and expressions, to convey the right moods and undertones. When the characters are talking, it is essential that lip movements and audio are synchronized. Have you ever noticed when the audio on television is off by even a fraction of a second? This can be very annoying, and we may struggle to keep up with what is being said. You must use your knowledge of phonetics and phonology to make the appropriate lip movements of your character. In addition, the words and the way they are being spoken, must ineract along with the character's body language, so they convey the same message. Film techniques and pre-production When you see a good movie, you react emotionally to the plot, and your reaction is not at random. It is in fact the filmmakers who are manipulating you! As a filmmaker, you have many tools at your disposal for manipulating the audience into experiencing the story as you wish. The effect of good editing by use of multiple angles may increase the tension in the scene. You can use variations in camera motion, speed, soundtrack, lighting, shadows and colors, to create different moods and tones. An important part of pre-production is storyboarding, where the film's scenes are drawn, often as a cartoon, with descriptions of movements and mood. This is very cost-effective, given that it is easier to change a scene in a storyboard, rather than making an entire animation sequence again. It also helps the instructor to maintain artistic control over the final product, beacause the entire production derives from storyboard. Admission requirements Three-year upper secondary education or a vocational education certificate. [-]

Best Distance learning Course Studies in Design 2017. Graphic Design is a practical field focusing on creative problem solving using the principles of visual communication. The course is suited for those who want to work with interesting and diverse assignments within print, photography, illustration, web and motion design. A visually innovative and sales-promoting field New products that get launched continuously, or pre-existing ones that need a redesign of their visual identities to maintain their sales, defines today’s consumer market. This includes everything from food to clothing items, movies to music, household goods to computers, banking to transportation. They all compete for the consumer’s attention, and for any businesses to exist, it is important that their products or services are the consumers’ preferred choice. Graphic Design’s task is to promote, sell, inform and create awareness of a company and their products. Designers "speak" visually on behalf of their clients, and have a responsibility to convey their personalities and visions effectively. Through creative design solutions and strategically developed messages, Graphic Design contributes to enhanced competitive advantages in the market. There are a few fields of industry that integrate multiple disciplines in their practice. The most effective and successful design solutions extract knowledge from marketing, psychology, arts, craft, history and communication. In the context where consumers experience technology as too complex or navigation in various transport systems as difficult, Graphic Design presents new methods for user-friendliness. Apart from being associated with creativity, the field is predominantly solution-oriented. A more playful and artistic side of Graphic Design however, strives to create memorable visual experiences, e.g. in the entertainment industry, commercial interiors contexts, the web or TV. Graphic design is an industry that invites you to an everyday life that is more distinct than the other and each project more colourful and exciting than the previous. It is quite possible to become a good graphic designer during the study program, even without any prior knowledge. It is more important to have interest in the subject, good work ethics and an ambitious nature. Learning outcomes In todays society where all information is conveyed simultaneously through both printed material, Internet and broadcasting, there is a growing need for professionals with the skills to produce work for various media types. At Noroff, Graphic Design is explored through several disciplines; visual communication, illustration, advertising, photography, web design and motion design. After completing the course, you as a designer will have more diverse qualifications and therefore a greater range in terms of work opportunities. We aim to educate and encourage our students to becoming self-motivated and independent designers who can work well interdisciplinary. The first year of the course provides practical understanding of the principles, methods and techniques in effective visual communication for print as well as screen. You receive in-depth training in design software and form a good understanding of the guidelines and standards that are expected in the industry. You unfold your skills visually and creatively with exciting assignments. The second year takes you further into the design profession and you work towards finding out who you are as a designer. What do you like to work with, do you have any talents you did not know about perhaps, or is there a particular style you should develop and make your own? You learn further how to link art, design and technology together to create new expressions that excites. Course structure During your study period, you will be challenged with real, practical and relevant projects that will give an idea of the industry expectations and the challenges that may face you as a professional designer. The best time to experiment with new ideas and finding your own style is during your studies. Several of the projects will allow you to work freely and explore with several creative techniques. Choosing an effective method and creative approach is crucial to the end result of what you produce. The course focuses on the creative process of design, which starts with defining the brief, researching well before proceeding on with developing ideas, sketching and then finally completing the designed end product. It is a challenging and methodical process, but nothing is more satisfying than seeing your sketched ideas transforming into a finished, professionally sound design solution. The classes are based on lectures, demonstrations and workshops with practical assignments. The semesters are divided into modules where you concentrate on one topic at a time and the submission of your assignments. Towards the end of each semester, students will have one week at their disposition to refine and represent their projects in a portfolio. Each semester rounds off with a more extensive study project that emphasizes on creative and strategic problem solving, production quality and presentation aimed towards a client. First year Graphic Design 1 & 2 Strategic Design 1 Photography 1 & 2 Digital Design 1 Portfolio 1 & 2 Project 1 & 2 Second Year Graphic Design 3 & 4 Strategic design 2 Photography 3 & 4 Motion Design Digital Design 2 Portfolio 3 & 4 Project 3 Final Project / Internship Career options As a graphic designer, you will possess the knowledge and skills of branding, information design, web design and motion graphics. You can work in a design or advertising agency, at a printer or in the publication industry such as books or magazines, in the fashion industry, in film and television, with musicians, organizations in Arts and Culture, or as a freelancer. Some of the tasks of a graphic designer includes designing logos and visual identities, brochures, advertisements and posters, magazines or book covers, product packaging, signs, trade fairs and exhibitions, websites, information design, film and television vignettes etc. In larger corporations with their own information, communication or marketing departments, you can also work as a Marketing Coordinator or an Information Consultant. You can expect to be tasked with updating their company identity manual, designing various marketing materials, updating, managing and designing the information hierarchy of their websites, producing interactive advertisements or digital presentations. As you increase your work experience, or top off your graphic design education with further studies, it is common to aim towards positions such as Art Direction for instance, with the responsibility of major client management and more extensive projects. Additionally, you can work as a Communications Consultant with consulting expertise in general graphic design, media options and information structures. Further studies With a diploma from Noroff, it is possible to apply directly into the third year of a Bachelor’s degree program at one of our international partners; Teesside University in England or Deakin University in Australia. Teesside University has for several years been on the top-5 list of the best Arts and Graphics faculties in England, while Deakin University has invested nearly 90 million to provide you the best facilities to develop and unfold your creativity. An alternative for students seeking to build on their design skills and technical expertise in web design is our 1-year course in Internet Marketing. Internet Marketing focuses on the tools that can provide a company more value through increased visibility on the internet through advertisement networks, social media presence, and the company's own website.

Would you like to work with CAD modelling? As a CAD operator you work on modelling and drawing structures such as buildings, products, or mechanical devices. You work in teams with architects and engineers who are responsible for drafting solutions and calculations. A specialist field in growth Technical Design with CAD (Computer Assisted Design) is a living specialized field that demands that you comprehend both software and the technological knowhow. There is a huge shift in the industry going from 2-dimensional (2D) drawings and into 3-dimensional (3D) models, especially in regards to Architectural and Mechanical designs. Mechanical constructors and architects are large consumers of the digital tools used for drawings and visualizations. The need for efficient and competent CAD-operators is ever growing and expanding as a result. We co-operate with some of the world’s biggest distributor of construction software – Autodesk. The course teaches the following Autodesk software: AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit and 3Ds Max. Learning outcomes Many of our students partake in this course as a supplement to an existing career, some take advantage of a slow job marked to develop new skills, while others get an advantage for further studies within architectural- or engineer degrees. Students coming from secondary schools, such as carpentry, may transfer their knowledge further into construction, a mechanic or welder may want to pursue a career in mechanical design or even offshore. Technical design with CAD comprise both architectural- and mechanical construction, this way you can choose the path that is best for you. Thanks to new tools and techniques provided in this course the divider between architectural and mechanical is not that wide apart as it once was. Especially in regards to urban business premises where constructions consist of multiple elements like various steel constructions, lifts, air-condition vents, stairs of varying building materials and much more. Everything has to be planned, designed, and technically drawn, to be functional in conjunction with the foundation, supports and walls. The course gives knowledge on technical drawing initiation, 2D drafting, 3D modeling and aims for realistic visualizations. We provide a thorough education on the major aspects of these fields using advanced tools and best practice techniques and experiences. The first semester introduces you to the understanding of technical drawings through 2D drafting and basic 3D models, and finally visualizing your own scene using a combination of the key techniques you’ve learned with AutoCAD and 3Ds Max. The next semester deals with more advanced techniques in 3D construction, and development of visualizations with Revit, Inventor and 3Ds Max. The result is highly accurate models and drawings in photo real presentations. First Semester 2D Basics Setup and Edit Technical Drawing 3D Basics 3D Modeling Co-operation 1 Visualization Image Processing First Semester Exam Second Semester Parts and Assembly I Assembly II and Drawing Co-operation 2 Animation BIM-Modeling BIM-Documentation BIM-Visualization Second Semester Exam Work opportunities There is a constant demand for dedicated CAD-operators in the mechanical and electrical aspects of the machine- / oil industry, at the same time the expanse and needs for architectural designers are peeking. As a CAD-operator you are mostly likely working in teams together with architects and engineers, you might be the one in charge of the digital properties of the on-going projects; constructing and updating models, drawings etc. During the four week final exam period, you can co-operate with a company on a “live” project. This has for many previous students sprung open the doors to the industry. The feedback received from the coalition partners involved has been astonishingly positive.
