The comprehensive curriculum helps students develop a critical outlook and individual vocabulary. As they hone their craft, they begin to transcend language to generate bold statements, touching upon social, political, personal and cultural subjects that are pertinent to the world.

Students in the Department of Screen-Based Arts have a unique and marvelous opportunity to create new worlds, breath life into them through motion and choreography and fill them with substance through a storyline. Animation and video artists can break loose from narrative and convert the camera into a distinctive tool that can become a flexible and clever writing and drawing implement to express passions, thoughts and ideas or just document and tell a story. They can do all this by simply using a pencil and paper, by moving objects in space or by utilizing the newest, state-of-the-art digital technologies and 3D software. 

The Department teaches classical 2D, stop motion, 3D animation, video art, documentary and experimental film making – as well as new and interactive media programs, such as augmented and virtual reality. It offers students the rare opportunity to choose from a wide variety of traditional techniques, cutting-edge tools and future technologies – and any combination of them.

In the Department, students learn to become independent, professional and multidisciplinary creators who possess the skills and desire to enhance and innovate in their artistic field. The comprehensive curriculum helps students develop a critical outlook and individual vocabulary. As they hone their craft, they begin to transcend language to generate bold statements, touching upon social, political, personal and cultural subjects that are pertinent to the world – many times breaking through the barriers between art, movie-making, animation and new medias to develop a sharp and personal message. 

As Israel’s most comprehensive animation and experimental cinematography degree program, the Department is considered “the start-up nation of animation.” Bezalel’s visual artists are known and recognized worldwide for their ability to convey their thoughts, beliefs and inspirations and communicate their message with a powerful impact – garnering them many international awards and prizes, some of them the most prestigious in the field.
