5 reasons to do a foundation year in applied arts (Manaa) : digital arts specialization
Foundation year in applied arts, or MANAA, remains for some a necessary route to achieve artistic training cycles from a general education. In this approach and the choice of this MANAA, it is essential to choose the content and objectives of this training.
1. Be a creator of digital images
The creation of digital images is now the most developed way of communication on the planet. The various industries use computer graphics 2D / 3D to simulate, serve and communicate. Computer graphics 2D / 3D takes the form appropriate to the area where it is applied: medical simulation, architectural utopia, synthesis of a current event, immersion in a virtual reality.
2. Better than a simple upgrade: a specialized MANAA
Learning theoretical knowledge and technical skills must be in a clearly defined professional goal. We must be able to apply the knowledge learned on concrete cases of creation. The foundation year in applied arts “Digital Arts” specialization has the ambition to give students the keys to the practical operation of the digital visual creation.
3. Better preparation to better manage technical skills
In studies, one of the difficulties that can meet the student is the simultaneous application of concepts on image and sophisticated techniques of creating these images. Learning upstream specific concepts of image creation will be used to better implement visual creation of technical tools.
4. Create in the arts of their choice, the MANAA
Today, it is necessary to reconcile quality of studies and duration of these studies. This requires being able to be in the specialization of your choice as soon as possible, in order to have the time to understand and express yourself creatively in this sector (matte painting, compositing, special effects, 3D animation…)
5. Computer graphics 2D / 3D: an expanding market
The job market is booming for those who care to work in the range of sectors and transversal skills that this area offers. It is generally built on two characteristics: specialization and the application area of specialization. (Example: Specialization: Graphic Rendering 3D sector. Architecture, 3D animated film, advertising) According specializations and sectors, job proposals are more or less numerous, but in all cases they are still growing.
