Animation Exposé showcases student films from the University’s leading Digital Animation courses

11 June 2019

Graduating students from the University of Hertfordshire’s BA digital animation and visual effects courses showcased their work to leading animation industry representatives at the School of Creative Arts’ Animation Exposé event.

The annual end of year event began with talks by major animation, games and VFX studios about recent projects, followed by an award show featuring entries from this year’s graduating students and voted for by industry guests.

Animation Exposé is a key event as around 40 animation, games and VFX studios attend the day to meet the students, view their work and potentially hire our graduating students. As always, we are hugely impressed with the standard of our graduating students’ work and wish them the best of luck in their future careers.
