We will not be admitting new students to this programme for the Autumn 2019 admission cycle. 

Do you want to work as a visual effects artist in the film and advertising industry? Are you technologically and/or artistically inclined? This programme will guide you through the visual effects processes in order to produce production-quality material.

We use different softwares as tools to re-create ideas and our goal is to navigate you through the processes and the techniques behind visual effects. You will learn how to solve upcoming issues through set time frames also how to make your workflow more efficient when producing photorealistic production quality material.

The lectures are held by guest lecturers from the industry, ensuring a great network throughout your education. We also have a global perspective to this programme, by inviting international lecturers and fostering close contact with international film industry companies.

We specialise in the collaboration between the 3D artists and the Compositors who works closely together in real working situations.

Taking this to consideration we keep the two profiles under the same roof; Digital Compositing and 3D visualisation. Common for these profiles are courses where you learn the different production phases, time estimation, group dynamics, camera techniques and imagery.

Below you can read more about what courses are included in the two profiles.

Gain insight into all parts of compositing and learn to handle the tools you need to, for example, retouch lines that keep an actor hanging in the air, produce set extensions and integrate rendered 3D in live action material.

Learn to make high quality 3D productions within a set time frame for commercial and film productions. This can, for example, include modelling, texturing, shading, lighting and animating objects and scenes.
