...I got my big break

Hasan Khan, Visual Effects graduate

"The course I was studying taught me a great deal about how the film industry works, what tools they use and how the pipeline works. It also taught me a large variety of software and taught me to adapt to situations based on client requests or issues that pop up while working on a project.

We often worked in a team, which teaches you how to get along with and work with other people – a skill vital in this industry."
