Overview

You may have explored VFX before using software such as After Effects, or you may just be starting out. There is a lot to learn and becoming good requires an artistic eye for detail and technological know-how, we will support you to build on your experience level and get the best out of you.

Once you get into VFX you will realise there is a hugely diverse set of opportunities ranging from motion capture to matte painting, from compositing to creature effects (CFX), and our degree will give you the opportunity to forge your own career path from a good foundation based on industry practice.

We also work closely with you to help you network with industry and make that important first move into a VFX company. Through good social media practice, guest speakers and our weekly forums, annual events such as CGFX and our Grad Show, and trips, you can get your work viewed and critiqued by industry and get yourself known.

Employers love team players. Based in the film department, this degree gives you great opportunities to collaborate with other students from film, CGI, performance, animation, audio, music and many more to produce fully complete pieces that could be entered for film festivals or other competitions.

Career opportunities

VFX is created by a large team of individuals. As a member of the team, you will apply your specialised skill to assets while ensuring it is passed on to the next person to a standard that enables them to work efficiently, meaning a single shot may pass through 10 creatives’ hands before completion. Just some of the specialised niches that are involved in this process include:
