What is compositing? Well it’s Visual Effects for a start. Compositors are the masters of make-believe. Responsible for composing the final image in a VFX or motion picture sequence, this is how we create the illusion of reality.
Without compositing, we’d be looking at the gaudy wires that support actors during action sequences or shots lacking atmosphere and composition. As a Compositor, you’re the person who makes sure the shot meets the artistic brief set by the Director. You naturally look at the finer detail, checking whether that ‘minute detail’ looks right in the scene - and if not, why not? This department is where the real magic happens through a variety of creative and technical processes; and it takes highly skilled, creative individuals to make it happen.
We’ve teamed up with the Escape Studios (external link) to create a course that offers you the theoretical knowledge as well as the practical vocational experience to secure your first job in the VFX industry.
During this 22 week course you will learn a range of complex compositing techniques and submit five assignments. For each assignment you will be required to produce a final piece of project work and a supporting report which documents the work you have done on the compositing project. Throughout the process you’ll be asked to demonstrate advanced knowledge of 2D VFX production technologies and their use in a production environment.
If you’re looking for a Compositing for VFX course that offers you the practical skills you need to secure a job in the industry, alongside a formal University qualification, look no further.
