This course produces Skillset qualified professionals who are well prepared to enter the VFX industry at creative or managerial level.

This course will teach you the whole process in the creation of VFX. This includes pre-production meetings, VFX acquisition, scheduling, budgeting and shoot supervision. These modules also place VFX in the wider context of post-production and give an overview of the post-production workflow from brief to delivery, including transcoding, editing and deliverables. We give students access to all the necessary equipment, including cameras, the use of green screen studios with complete lighting rigs and the relevant software. Students will have the opportunity to visit a major post-production facility through our many industry partnerships. Entrants are likely to have previously studied arts, media, public relations, marketing, editing, post-production, motion graphics or 3D animation at undergraduate level.

The need for both film and video content means that there is a growing need not just for VFX artists but also VFX producers, post-production coordinators and project managers that have a deep understanding of the whole workflow and creation of visual effects and post-production

Studying part-time has given me more time to manage my direction of study, and also take on freelance projects. The course has really made things exciting again! Collaborating with other course colleagues has opened up new opportunities and I feel the benefits of having a Masters will help me stay ahead of the game. Jamie Perrin, graduate
