Animal Logic Academy (ALA) is a unique collaboration between UTS and Animal Logic – a world-leading creative animation and production studio. UTS ALA offers the first industry-led postgraduate degree of its kind in Australia - a Master of Animation and Visualisation (MAV) - and practice-based PhD research opportunities. On display in the UTS Library and in conjunction with National Science Week, are three projects from the first cohort of students to graduate from the program in 2017, and the research project of PhD student, Simon Rippingale.

The MAV program focuses on the application of digital animation, visual effects and CGI. The MAV incorporates three studios throughout the year where students work in collaboration to produce their final creation. The cohort of 2017 produced The Ever, a computer-generated imagery (CGI) animation, Rear Windows, an augmented reality (AR) experience, and TerraChi, a virtual reality (VR) experience. Artists, designers, IT professionals, programmers and digital content producers all work together on each project, building upon their existing skills to establish themselves in their area of expertise.

MAV graduates, 2017: Carol Amadio, Daniel Baird, Halil Basiacik, Andrew Battye, Hannah Chu , Emma Cooney, Jessica D’Ali, Aaron De Leon, Alejandro Garrido, Alessandra Grasso, Akishi Ling, Ravi Naidoo, Mai Pham, Ben Streek, Grace Testa, Laurie Wu, Ding Yu, Jason Zhao.

UTS Library curates a series of exhibitions each year that showcase works produced by UTS students and staff. The Library is a point at which the entire University connects and these exhibitions create opportunities for cross-disciplinary encounters, encouraging the exchange of knowledge, ideas and research between academic groups and faculties.
