Advanced 3D for Visual Effects (18 weeks)
Dive into the detail and take your VFX knowledge to the next level!
With our Advanced 3D for VFX course you will learn the same skills as our 12 weeks course but in more depth and detail, resulting in a more comprehensive skillset and a more detailed showreel.
You’ll start by sharpening your core 3D skills to give you a thorough technical understanding of software and principles, before moving on to more complex techniques of particle movement, hair, fur and more. Plus, we partner with an industry expert on all of our daytime courses (full-time) so you'll hear directly from someone who's working in the industry and get feedback on your work from a pro.
Our tutors are top industry professionals, so you’ll be taught by the best in the business whether you’re a 3D artist looking to develop a career in VFX, a 2D VFX artist wanting to move into 3D or a VFX graduate preparing for the competitive VFX job market. This course will also suit students from a creative or technical background, keen to change career and get into VFX.
