Escape Studios are pleased to announce that the Skillset Film Skills fund have awarded us a new grant as part of their Structured New Entrants Training initiative. As a result we will be offering the opportunity of a 100% funded course to 12 successful candidates committed to developing a career in film visual effects. Applicants must be EU passport holders and UK based.
Being held at Escape Studios in London, the course will commence on August 11th 2008 and run for 18 weeks, concluding with a 4 week industry placement at a major UK film facility. In addition to having their fees met, participants on the course will be paid the minimum wage throughout the duration.
The 18 week tuition section of the course will teach you everything you need to know in order to combine CG elements with live-action and create professional visual effects shots. Participants on the course will receive thorough training in the use of Maya, camera-tracking, lighting, texturing and 2D compositing techniques used professionally in the visual effects industry. Students will then spend 4 weeks putting their skills to use during a work placement with a film visual effects department.
