Visual Effects (VFX)
The VFX course is a 16-week programme which takes the participants through all the stages and components of photorealistic compositing and visual effects from start to finish.
The VFX course is constructed to equip highly creative and dedicated, mostly European, computer graphics professionals with the knowledge and skills to create photorealistic computer graphics and integrate them seamlessly with live action footage. This will range from set extensions through CG-characters or vehicles to body part replacements and effects simulations such as smoke, debris and water. Participants will work within the industry standards for software. Throughout the course, participants work on their own final project, a short live action scene with integrated CG elements and simulations. At the end, participants will have the opportunity to incorporate their final project into their show reels under the supervision of their guest teacher, and they will then be ready to start to work immediately as junior VFX generalists for film or animation studios.
Learning outcomesTraining in compositing and visual effects, augmented networks and employability, exposure to a variety of highly skilled tutors from the best animation and VFX studios in the world.
