Overview

MiddlesexLogo

 

In global partnership with Middlesex University, London, SAE Institute offers courses to prepare students for BA/BSc Honours Degrees in selected countries.

 

From the serenity of an elven forest to an explosive planetary invasion, visual effects are at the core of the moving industry. From blockbuster movies to high-impact commercials and interactive video games, visual effects artists are now embedded across many film projects, working to shape the visual language of an entire movie. In the UK, the visual effects sector continues to evolve and grow.

HOW YOU'LL LEARN

From modelling to 3D animation and motion capture, you’ll learn the critical hands-on elements and processes needed to tell a story and release your ideas from the page.

You will learn how to analyse and design images and animations for a range of professional contexts. We place a strong emphasis on equipping you with the tools you'll need to manipulate your creations and you'll gain an understanding of critical pre-production planning processes. You'll also explore how lighting, rendering and visual language combine to bring visual effects to life.

Your final project includes a professional showreel of your accomplishments demonstrating your practical skills and showcasing your storytelling and artistic talents.
