The Animation Workshop's VFX course equips you with the knowledge and skills to create photo realistic computer graphics and integrate them seamlessly with live action footage. This will range from set extensions through vehicles. In addition to exercises, you will be working on a personal project throughout the course. The instructors will help you define and shape it using recorded live action footage.

Each week consists of artistic and technical lectures, film analysis, assignments, evaluations, one-on-one/group critiques and tutoring, and production simulation.

At the end of the course, you will get showreel advice, and you will be ready to start to work immediately as junior VFX artists for film or animation studios.
