Vancouver is the North American capital for Film and Television Visual Effects. With a labour crisis happening today, there has never been a better time to get trained as a professional visual effects artist or technician.
Visual Effects is the highest form of the art and technology of digital media. It involves creating computer generated images that are so realistic, the audience can’t tell they are not real. VFX includes modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, dynamic effects (water, cloth, dirt, explosions, etc.), shading, lighting, tracking and compositing. All these skills must be employed within established studio procedures and collective workflow.
