International Center for Excellence in Animation

The International Center for Excellence in Animation (ICEA) @ Daemen College is located in Buffalo’s Tri-Main Center, 2495 Main Street, Suite 530. Occupying 17,000 square feet, the Center is equipped with studios; editing rooms; and a state of -the- art screening room.


The ICEA @ Daemen delivers instruction in two areas:

Animation (B.F.A.). Animation provides students with more than a technical knowledge. They gain a strong foundation in the Fine Arts to support their investigation of story, action, and artistry.

Visual Effects (Certificate). The Certificate Training Program in Visual Effects is a highly intensive program that trains students in current industry practice and prepares them to enter into the VFX industry.

The Daemen College Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation is committed to not only giving students specialized technical training in 2D and 3D Animation within a fine arts context, but also to foster the development of well-rounded learning experiences so students may actively participate in the complex world.

The Visual Effects Certificate program trains students for post-production work in the film industry.

The program consists of five classes, three credits per class:

  1. Rotoscoping
  2. Paint/Rig Removal
  3. Compositing Matchmoving
  4. 2D-3D Film Conversion

The next cohort begins May 25, 2015.
