Training students in the specific skills and knowledge expected within a junior role, this hands-on program acts as an accelerator for artists who want to kick start their careers in VFX.
Who is it for?
Our program is targeted at candidates who have a CG generalist knowledge and experience using industry standard tools including Maya or Nuke, but need to take that first step into the industry.
How does it work?
Led by a Framestore training supervisor in a classroom environment, students will participate in a series of hands-on challenges to bring the application of their skills up to industry standards. We have a history of providing industry-leading courses within VFX, and have developed the course with Framestore’s unique pipeline and tools in mind. The course runs across several months, is fully funded by Framestore, and free of charge for the selected students.
The program will develop a unique theoretical and practical skill set in our students, as well as giving access to a number of Framestore experts, through masterclasses and specific technical challenges. Developed in collaboration with key Framestore creative and technical personnel, we have collaborated with external training providers to design the bespoke training courses.
Past courses have been in Animation, Compositing and Creature FX, with plans to develop further courses in additional disciplines.
What do I get out of it?
Students who successfully complete the course will be offered a standard contract for full time employment within the relevant department at Framestore.
