The BA (Hons)/FdA Visual Effects and Post-Production (Film) is a course designed to provide students with the practical, critical and theoretical tools required by the contemporary visual effects and post-production industries. Students develop the problem-solving and reflective abilities necessary for study and subsequent work within the industry. The program has a focus towards film and television post-production, colour grading, multi-platform editing, sound design and compositing combining 2d/3d animation and visual effects with 'live' action footage, simulating the industry.
Visual effects production is an innovative area of contemporary design; it’s blending of art and technology calls for practitioners who are both technically skilled and aesthetically aware, with a balance of pragmatic decision making and creative flair. The BA (Hons)/FdA Visual Effects and Post-Production (Film) course is designed to equip students with strong observational skills and the ability to apply these skills in the compositing of a final moving image sequence.
