About this course

Want to create mind-blowing effects; the kind that leave audiences in awe? Serious about kick-starting your career in Visual Effects? With our PG Cert qualification in 3D for VFX you’ll learn how. We’ve teamed up with the Escape Studios (external link) to create a course that offers you the theoretical knowledge as well as the practical vocational experience to secure your first job in the VFX industry. With 3D VFX you can create something out of nothing, making the impossible possible – an art form that’s become increasingly more commonplace since the early 1980s. From cinema to music videos and television production, VFX are everywhere.

Modelling, texturing, lighting, tracking and rendering - these are every 3D Artists' mantra and are the skills you’ll learn on this course. Although, unlike our 12-week course, you’ll be asked to take this a step further to demonstrate advanced knowledge of 3D VFX production technologies and their use in a production environment. During your 22 week course at Escape Studios in London you will submit five assignments. For each assignment you will be required to produce a final piece of project work and a supporting report which documents the work you have done on the 3D project. If you’re looking for a VFX course that offers you the skills you need to secure a job in the industry, alongside a formal University qualification, look no further.
