Are you a filmmaker who’d like to build on your knowledge of the post-production process, creating your own visual effects to enhance your productions?

Would you like to enhance the production values of your promotional/training videos?

Or are you interested in learning some of the key VFX techniques used in the production of your favourite films?

Then this is the course for you.

Creatives are increasingly required to have a one-person-band approach to producing their work.

Increasing your software skillset will not only make you more employable but will also open up further creative avenues for you to explore.

The course is almost 100% hands-on practical work with a small amount of supporting technical theory.

What will I gain?

You’ll leave with a sound knowledge and control of key VFX techniques.

The course will open up new creative avenues for you as a media producer, as well as making you more employable by increasing your software skillset.
