IT'S THE RIGHT TIME!
There is a bigger demand
for VFX than ever before.
VFX are an essential part of today’s cinema. Be it spectacular action sequences and alien worlds in Hollywood blockbusters, subtle and almost invisible set-extensions in historical dramas or fully digital feature animation movies. Not to mention modern advertising as well as TV shows.
This ever growing workload is the reason why VFX companies are always on the lookout for new talent all over the globe.
And this is where the VFXbootcamp comes into play!
It takes a team of specialists, both artistic and technical, to overcome the creative challenges. What part of the process are you most passionate about?
fluids, magic, explosions and fire – TDs create and simulate any physical phenomena
combining all the practical and cg elements of a shot to create the final image
building cloth, muscle, skin, hair and fur systems for more realism and belivable interaction
bringing creatures and machines to life by hand keyframing and/or motion capture techniques
visualizing everything from worlds and creatures to spaceships!
seamlessly creating or extending sets with full CG environments and/or digital matte painting
layout and previz
framing new shots, solving cameras and match moving to blend with the cinematopraphy
lighting and rendering
actually turning numbers and polygons into believable images that fit into the scenes
the creation and application of realistic, physically plausible textures and materials to all cg objects
the management and coordination layer that keeps schedule and budget on track
the technical backend that ensures the flow of data and gives artists the tools they need
