TEACHING METHOD

Rainbow Academy is the only Italian reality that blends formation and work, being part of a proper International Production Industry.
It is a perfect mix of the reality of a workplace like that of the Rainbow group and the expertise of its teachers, all established professionals, who guide their students step by step towards creating their own productions. The method used is that of putting authenticity above all else and involves simulating a real-life working experience in a Production Studio, as in the great American companies.
Our students experience all the production stages first-hand, and complete projects that are then included in their own Portfolio or professional Reel.

GOALS AND SKILLS

The aim of the master course in Concept Art is to help people, who are creative and have a talent for drawing, to become true professionals by learning all the techniques in use in the top international studios. From an idea of the art director and the director, the Concept Artist has to create and finalize a series of stylistic tasks and technical materials needed by the production department. Through a complete didactic programme devised by the internationally experienced teaching staff, students are led through all the stages towards creating the environments, objects and characters that inhabit the amazing worlds designed for cinema, animation and videogames.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

This course forms professional Digital Artists – people who provide for the 2D visual development in the various Entertainment industries: Cinema, Animation and Videogames.

DIDACTIC
PROGRAMME

PHOTOSHOP

A guide to the use of Adobe Photoshop, introducing all the techniques and tools needed in image management, the use of brush and paint tools and the best colouring techniques for the creation of any 2D model.


ENVIRONMENT DESIGN

After creating the Character Design, it is time for our students to understand how to create their own Environment Design. Students are first involved in an analysis of the different types and styles of Environment Design, both interior and exterior. This stage is then followed by a study of the props that characterize the environment and the perspective, before students actually begin to create and finalize their own Environment Design.


CHARACTER DESIGN

After studying Silhouettes, Anatomy and Dynamics, students start structuring and creating their own ideas. Guided through the various stages by their supervisors, students quickly deliver their own Character Design.


FINALIZATION: COMPOSITION, LIGHTING AND COLOUR

Once the creation of the Character and Environment Design stage is over, it is time for students to complete their final project, under the close supervision of our team of professionals.

Students learn about image composition and lighting and how to manage colour contrast, before finalizing their work. Each student’s finalised project will be proof of their creativity and the originality of their portfolio.
