Visual Effects 2019 course

Through the intensive, full-time, 16-week course, you get an understanding of the whole VFX pipeline and gain the right knowledge, skills and confidence as a VFX generalist. The VFX course is taught exclusively by visiting VFX artists, who are in the classroom doing demos, lectures and giving feedback every day from morning to afternoon!

Through the Professional Training course in Visual Effects, we equip 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 to vehicles, other assets, as well as matte paintings and projections. Participants will work within the indus¬try standards for software. In addition to exercises, you will be working on a personal project throughout the course, a short live-action scene with integrated CG elements. The instructors will help you define and shape it using recorded live action footage. At the end, we guide you in constructing your shot breakdowns and showreels, and you will be ready to start to work immediately as a junior VFX generalist for film or animation studios.
