Muhammad Noor Hilman Noordin, a student currently in LASALLE's Diploma in Animation programme, was first sucked into the world of animation through the television programmes he watched, and the computer games he played. At some point, he realised animation was a skill that he could turn into his livelihood. That gave him the push he needed to embark on this path, and he picked an animation course at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) College Central after finishing secondary school.
In the future, Hilman hopes to be able to expand his career overseas to work in a company that rivals Riot Games in the United States, an acclaimed game developer company. For now, he intends to further his studies at LASALLE by continuing in the BA(Hons) Animation Art programme after fulfilling his National Service commitments.
