We are a trade school which trains for careers in high end visual effects and animation production. As the vast majority of jobs are now part of very large department based studio pipelines, educational curriculum must reflect this with equally specialized programs. Through our experience, the traditional education model fails to effectively produce the high level of skill required to enter into sustainable employment.
Our craft based programs (FX, Lighting, and Compositing) has our students focussing their development on essential department based skills. This allows students to achieve a very high level of mastery within a one year timeline, far exceeding the expected outcomes from general study programs spanning multiple years. At the core of our curriculum is project based learning, simulating production patterns, creating valuable portfolio content, and adapting to the individual training goals.

We take great pride in our close industry connections. Industry advisors contribute to our curriculum development through our Program Advisory Committees (Comprised of Dept. Leads & Senior Artists) as well as periodic visits to see student progress and speak about employment opportunities within their studios. Department Leads and Recruiters also provide formal feedback during screenings of our students’ reels as they approach graduation.
DNeg, ILM, Animal Logic, Cinesite, Rodeo, and Method are historically some of the most active studios in collaborating with us. Our Department Leads maintain contact with past graduates, receiving tips and feedback on any new production trends and on creating smoother job entry preparation for our current students. We are also proud to host Vancouver’s primary VFX Job Board. (vfxvancouver.com)
