The National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA), the leading centre for teaching research and production in computer animation, has commissioned us to create a new website which will include an archival record of 15 years worth of animation projects.
The site will refresh the Centre’s current online media presence, and will be created to more accurately reflect its expertise and its offering of leading professional courses, research and facilities, the vibrancy of its student’s work, and to position the Centre as a fresh and dynamic place to study courses in computer animation.
The new site is currently being developed and will primarily focus on showcasing student projects. This phase will be completed and launched in October 2006, with further development planned before the website is finally completed in early 2007.
Jon Wardle of The NCCA said, “The NCCA boasts the most extensive computer animation facilities in the UK and is the leading centre for computer animation; one of the most rapidly expanding areas of creative endeavour and technical development. Some of the more visible applications of 3D computer animation are seen in animated sequences in feature films, television and computer games, and it is the outstanding creative talent of our students and award winning standards of the Centre’s teaching and resources that will be the focus of the new website.”
We have developed a web template that uses muted colours so to keep the focus on the vibrancy of the student showcase, and in a format which affords the opportunity to showcase a large number of visual animations. The contemporary look and feel of the website is conducive to the positioning of the Centre as a leader within the computer animation industry.
