Animation for everyone!

We exist to build the community, share the skills, and inspire the vision to enable animators all around the world to bring their stories to life.


The story so far…

When there weren’t enough animators in the world to make the ambitious Chicken Run movie, the Aardman Academy was conceived and trained scores of animators to produce what went on to become the highest-grossing animation of all time. Born out of the most famous stop-motion studio in the world, we’ve now trained hundreds of world-class animators, directors, model makers and more, all around the world.
