Shoot your own VFX shots

Each participant will be assigned a specific shot - inspired from existing high profile productions - which represents a typical technical challenge, both from VFX and Cinematographic point of view. The collective effort of the class will contribute to the creation of the 15 VFX shots.

Whilst on-set you’ll operate camera and lighting equipment, work with actors, direct your own sequence and then take it into post production. On-set you will take on different crew roles so that you begin to understand and appreciate the challenges of other departments involved in the production process and specifically see how that can impact on the life of a VFX artist in post.

Access to a professional 5K S35 production camera (Red Gemini), lighting and grip equipment is all included in the price of this course, as is access to our state of the art post-production suites.
