Visual Effects (VFX)
The secrets of VFX blockbusters finally revealed! From the start of this study programme, we’re going to take a look “behind the scenes” to discover what goes into the creation of all those visual effects.
The process of film magic starts with rotoscoping, tracking, matchmoving and compositing. We dive into the greenkey studio or we film on location with a green screen. You will be given a solid technical foundation at the start in the math and programming courses, after which we pull open all registers of SideFx Houdini to show you how all the visual effects are made and what’s needed to bring them all to life.
In addition, we see all possible scenarios in terms of simulations: explosions, smoke, particles, fluids, cloth, muscles, hair, ... You
literally become *the* CGI creator of a hyperrealistic 3D scene, or you combine recorded material, 2.5D matte paintings and set extensions. Techniques such as compositing and color grading are the final steps in this production process.
The trajectory of this curriculum is based on to the current needs of the film industry. Whether it’s London, Montreal or closer to
home, the possibilities for hard-working VFX Artists are unlimited!
