Producing for VFX (6 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 6 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 daytime courses (full-time), 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.
