What is VFX? Get to the Heart of it with Mark Spevick

This August, our very own Head of 3D and VFX Tutor, Mark Spevick, will be revealing some of the secrets at the heart of VFX. Introducing you to key techniques and exposing what this creative career is really like, Mark hopes to demystify the science behind the art and correct the false pretense that this is a career purely for the technical elite. That a career in VFX is in fact within your grasp.

What is Visual Effects? In our 11 years, this can be a tricky subject to encapsulate in one sentence, because it’s such a broad subject. For many people, it’s the term they’ve heard when learning how filmmakers created the most breath-taking moments in cinema history. From the tiger in ‘Life of Pi’ to the extra-terrestrial space crafts in our favourite Sci-Fi’s; we’ve enjoyed decades of increasingly awe-inspiring effects across film, television and commercials. And if you’d like to dig a little deeper to find out how these effects are achieved, you’ve come to the right place.

Join us for this essential webinar where Mark will be getting to the heart of VFX; explaining exactly what the process entails, the tools used by the pros, the job opportunities available and how a career in VFX is more accessible than you think.
