  • In this mid-program, capstone studio course, students collaborate to take a project from pre-production to final product using a standard production pipeline model. We’ll apply current 3D technologies to design and create a high-production value CG set/environment.


  • Understand Workflow and the Maya interface
  • Examine methods of modeling and texturing surfaces (NURBS, polygons and subD surfaces)
  • Investigate modeling, texturing and lighting for the production pipeline
  • Explore optimizing models and textures for rendering


  • Design and create high-production value CG set/environments utilizing current 3D technologies
  • Manage a team project from concept to completion
  • Integrate appropriate time management skills required for a production
  • Expand upon your personal interests by encouraging self-exploration into new methods and technologies


  • From this course, students will gain confidence working in a team environment and understand the requirements and demands of taking a project through to completion.
