Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Digital Media Production



KPT/JPS(PA9096)05/23 

 

This programme focuses on 3 areas of growth in Malaysia namely Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Video Production.

Animation is no longer restricted to children and we continue to watch them well into adulthood with appreciation to the advancements in the industry such as computer-generated images (CGI), visual effects (VFX) and 3D movies.

Visual Effects goes beyond telling stories, it makes the unimaginable come to life, going beyond words and painting. The role they pay not only exists in movies but extends to Television, Commercials and other digital content in mobile devices.

With affordable equipment, the production quality from off the shelf consumer digital video equipment rivals the larger studios with unlimited budgets, evident with the statistics of youths watching online streaming media. This is particularly aimed at students with creative content to market whilst still being able to be an entrepreneur and have creative control over their own content.
