If you have a strong interest in working in the feature film visual effects industry this is the perfect course for you. You’ll embrace the complete visual effects post production pipeline and focus on the theory, principles and production of visual effects assets and shots. The course covers a broad range of visual effects disciplines such as modelling, texturing, lighting, rendering, dynamic simulation, digital matte painting, and compositing, as well as offering a number of optional components that will allow you to tailor your course to either a more technical or more artistic flavour. The ideal applicant will have a keen interest in feature film visual effects. By the time you’ve graduated, you’ll have produced a high quality demonstrative showreel of visual effects work, specifically related to the production and integration of assets for the feature film visual effects industry. You’ll have the opportunity to utilise tools and design work created by students on our Computer Animation courses in Art & Design and Technical Arts to create visual effects work, mirroring industry practice. If you’re interested in the more technical aspects of mathematics and programming, have a look at our BA (Hons) Computer Animation Technical Arts, or, if you like the more creative aspects of character design and story generation, see our BA (Hons) Computer Animation Art & Design.
