The National Film School at IADT (Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology) has announced that the Post Graduate Diploma in Digital Sculpting + Modelling is now open for applications via Springboard+.

This is an exciting new 3d sculpting and modelling course, designed as a week by week introduction to ZBrush to help participants realize and explore your concepts efficiently in 3D, which has been developed by IADT with support from Screen Skills Ireland.

The course is structured over a twelve week period; one evening per week and every second Saturday. This is to ensure you have time to develop and practice your knowledge and skills between sessions. At the end of the course, you will understand the interface and basic workflows required to continue using the software to create your own 3D models. Both organic and hard surface modelling techniques will be explained and explored.

Application Deadline: 25th September 2020

Fees: Free for eligible job-seekers / €146.00 subsidised rate for those in employment.

Duration: Course runs for 12 weeks from the 6th November until the 13th February 2021.

ZBrush is an industry standard sculpting and 3D modelling application commonly used in animation, AR/VR, film/TV, illustration, jewelry design, prop making, and general sculptural practices. It is used as a tool to conceptualize and then fabricate those ideas, bringing them into reality.

This Programme was designed in partnership with Screen Skills Ireland and will be taught by Sean Forsyth, a leading 3D sculptor and educator in this area. Seán has worked as a 3D Modeller, Texture Artist, Fur Groomer, Technical Director, CG Supervisor and Art Director in the animation industry for over 14 years, supervising multi Emmy award winning television cartoons in that time. He has also worked as Environment Art Director on Ireland's first 3D animated feature film as well as being the Character Art Director on the Watership Down TV series and has also worked on Augmented and Virtual Reality surgical simulators. He currently works as a freelance digital sculptor and has sculpted and 3D printed props and environments for Game of Thrones and other major upcoming feature films and tv series. He has been using ZBrush since 2004.

Animation is a digital medium 3d Modellers are a key component of the production pipeline. They are both the technicians and artists that sculpt in 3D, digital worlds, and everything we see in 3D animations, VFX and even films. They create the monsters and heroes but also the worlds around them and the objects they interact with. Animators then make them move. It is critical that any 3D sculptor has the advanced skills need to create convincing characters and worlds and their role. requires then to command a variety of digital practices and technologies to the final completion of complex creative projects. This course is focused on that outcome.
