FACULTY OF FINE ARTS, MEDIA & CREATIVE INDUSTRIES
Puttnam School of Film & Animation
The media landscape today is complex and it will only grow more challenging in the future. To succeed in this dynamic, fast-changing industry, you will need to excel in a diverse, multi-disciplinary environment by utilising and integrating a wide range of emerging technologies. You will need to demonstrate a thorough and versatile understanding of the impact of these technologies on art and culture.
The degrees in Animation Art and Film, together with the diplomas in Animation and Broadcast Media offered by the Puttnam School of Film & Animation are designed to meet these rigorous demands. The School provides industry standard facilities, regular masterclasses conducted by industry practitioners, mentorships by established artist-educators, and strategic partnerships with industry heavyweights. All of this is designed to prepare you for a competitive employment market.
Our students’ films across all programmes stand as a testament to the high standards of the School’s namesake – Academy Award-winning film producer Lord David Puttnam – and have been showcased and won awards globally at events such as the Festival Internacional de Animacion, Digicon Animation and Film Awards (Singapore), and European Union Film Festival.
So, it is no surprise that some of our students have gone on to achieve great success: Filmmakers Boo Junfeng (Cannes Film Festival, International Critics’ Week) and James Khoo (Writer & Director of Best Short Film, Hentak Kaki at Singapore International Film Festival), Installation artist Ryf Zaini (iLight Festival/President’s Young Talents) and Elvin Siew (Technical Director, Industrial Light & Magic).
