The Animation Workshop

By Rasmus F. Jensen

What we got here is an amazing animation school with a lot of heart and soul. And, just to add a cherry on top of that, it is also one of the best animation educations in the world, ranking as number 12 in Animation Career Review List of Top 20 International Schools in 2015.

The Animation Workshop is housed in a former military building. Since the late 1980s, The Animation Workshop has educated and trained animators for the Danish as well as the international animation, game development and visual effects industry. So how was this achieved? Well, The Animation Workshop attracts teachers from all over the world, including professional animation artists from well-known studios such as Pixar and DreamWorks Animation. This plays a big part in the success of the school.

If you are lucky and skilled enough to be accepted into this school, you will be taught by some of the brightest and most talented people in the industry. All this expertise is then wrapped up in a warm and supportive environment, ensuring that everyone has the best possible odds to reach the peak of their creative potential. Sounds amazing right? No wonder they are ranked so high.
