Producing for VFX

Producing for VFX (12 weeks)

Be part of something exciting! After 15 years of being the leaders in VFX education we’re launching a new producing course.

Producers and their teams lie at the heart of any VFX project - masters of efficiency, they keep the project on-time and in budget. We’ve packed the essentials of production into this new course, for 12 weeks of intensive hands-on training in our studios. We’ll take you on the journey from concept to delivery, to experience each stage of the production pipeline and see how they interlink. We’ll teach you about the industry - scrutinising different VFX pipelines and getting to grips with the roles, lingo and software used. You’ll learn through workshops, practical software sessions and online tutorials, and you'll also complete a final project to demonstrate your ability to manage a VFX project.

We’ve created this course in response to industry demand for trained production staff. We’ve developed this course with successful producers and industry professionals (from the likes of The Mill, Double Negative and Jellyfish Pictures) so it reflects the skills needed in the industry right now.

Like all of our full-time courses, you’ll also have industry experts delivering guest lectures to really bring the content to life. For our July 2018 intake, Adam McInnes, freelance VFX Supervisor known for his work on The Martian, Sheila Wickens, VFX Supervisor at DNEG TV known for her work on Churchill, Emma Larsson, Bidding Producer, and Jacqui Marchant-Adams, VFX Coordinator at Lipsync Post, joined us to share their experience working in the industry.

Fees and funding

It’s exciting to see a course like this being made available. The Production department includes some of our most valued and challenging roles and it’s encouraging to see this course being developed & delivered in collaboration with experienced practitioners including several from DNEG across the Film & TV divisions. We’re already looking forward to welcoming two of the very first escapees from this course into the team at DNEG.
