Compositing for VFX (Part-time)
If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a visual effects (VFX) artist, studying on our Compositing for VFX Part-Time Evening course is the perfect way to kick-start your career.
The building blocks of 2D techniques, learn the skills you need to start developing your talent, and become job ready. The course follows the same principles as our Compositing for Visual Effects full-time course and you’ll learn the software and multitude of techniques involved in compositing. Best of all, you’ll be able to balance your evening classes with your day job.
You’ll gain real-world VFX production skills, including industry-recognised Nuke training, so you’ll have everything you need to apply for entry-level compositing jobs, such as a rotoscoping and paint artist.
You’ll get hands-on training from industry professionals who’ve come from leading VFX studios and learn the fundamentals of compositing for VFX, including rotoscoping, rig removal, paint prep techniques, colour balance, mastering 2D/planar tracking and how to create detailed keys of a shot, working inside Nuke, the industry’s favourite VFX compositing tool. You’ll also work with Nuke’s 3D projection system, camera tracking and learn how to integrate CG render passes into live action backplates. Quite a lot to fit into just 5 months!
Upon completion of the Compositing for VFX Part-Time Evening course, you’ll graduate with an Escape Studios Certificate of Achievement, a well-respected qualification within the industry, demonstrating you’ve studied an industry-based course and have the practical, hands-on skills studios are looking for.
The Compositing for VFX Part-Time Evening course will also help you to create a showreel that you can use as a portfolio of work to show employers.
Compositors are the masters of make-believe, responsible for creating the illusion of reality. They compose the final image in a VFX or motion picture sequence, creating VFX that make the impossible, possible! Without them, we’d all be looking at the wires that support actors during action sequences, or shots lacking in atmosphere or composition.
As a compositor, you’re the person who makes sure the shot meets the artistic brief set by the director. You’ll look at the finer detail and check everything looks right in the scene, and if not, why not?
