Advanced Compositing for Visual Effects (18 weeks)
Take your comp skills to a more technical level with this 18 week course. If you're serious about breaking into the industry - go advanced!
This is our most popular 2D course and it’s easy to see why. In just 18 weeks, you not only learn how to use 2D tools but you also get to grips with the calculations behind them. You study the content of the 12 week compositing course and then move onto 6 weeks of advanced study, exploring stereoscopic compositing and understanding how 2D and 3D integrate.
Studios are crying out for skilled compositors and we’ve packed this course with the essential and technical skills you need to get hired. You will have more time to perfect your showreel so you can apply for entry-level compositing jobs, such as a rotoscoping and prep artist. We've been teaching compositing at Escape Studios since 2002 and we’ve helped thousands of students break into the industry. To top if off, professionals from ETC (Electric Theatre Collective) will attend some of your classes so you can learn directly and receive feedback on your work from the pros.

Meet our tutors
A lot of Allar's life has been spent staring at computer monitors trying to figure out what's really going on. With a background in shooting news for TV and projecting films he found his way to the world of VFX through the Digital Post Production MA from the National Film and Television School.
After years of compositing commercials, music promos and feature films in Nuke and Flame, heading the VFX editorial department at Realise Studio and developing their pipeline solutions, the childhood calling of science drove him back to continue his studies in computing and the brains.
His research interests include computer vision, natural and artificial intelligence, brain-computer interfaces and finding approaches to bridge the art of cognitive neurosciences with the awesomeness of visual effects.
