Professional Film Making course

Film making visual effects

PDP IN FILMMAKING VISUAL EFFECTS
(24 MONTHS)

OVERVIEW This program has been designed to deal with Filmmaking by using Live Action, 3D Animation & Visual Effects. The first module deals with Fundamentals of Art, Design & Composition. A student then understands the basics of Photography and Filmmaking. The second module covers CG Assets & Characters, Rigging & Animation that is required for a VFX film. The third module deals with Dynamics & Tracking. The fourth module combines CG with live action footage using timelines and a node-based compositing software. At the end of the program, the student develops a Visual Effects short film using Live Action & CG.
