MA Visual Effects Production (3D)

Master the art of 3D VFX and take your skills to the highest level with our postgraduate course.

The MA Visual Effects Production (3D) programme is designed to give you both the practical training and a globally recognised postgraduate qualification.

You’ll study at our state of the art studios for 18 weeks, understanding the key 3D modules and advancing your skills exploring techniques such as particle movement, hair and fluids. The remainder of the course is working on two major projects, where you will apply the techniques you have learnt to a brief. You will receive regular contact with your tutors and have two great resources to add to your showreel.

We work with industry professionals to keep our courses relevant. All of our full-time courses are mentored by leading studios and we have regular industry events and talks so you hear directly from successful VFX artists.

Meet our tutors

Mark is our Head of 3D, combining teaching with working at the highest level in the industry.

He got his big break at Peerless Camera, the production house co-owned by Terry Gilliam, and worked on every Gilliam film from ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ to ‘The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus’, starring the late Heath Ledger. He also worked with director Martin Campbell on ‘Zorro’ and ‘Mask of Zorro’ before supervising on the set of ‘Casino Royale’.

Most recently, Mark managed the CG team that worked on the parachute scene in ‘Angels and Demons’, on behalf of post-house Double Negative.
