Beyond the challenges of learning the technical and artistic aspects of VFX are the more subtle considerations that sometimes block students from attaining a high level of mastery.
There are two major impediments that students encounter when honing their professional skills. The first is access to professional mentoring. A good mentor will help you calibrate your “eye” and coach you on the “soft skills” you will need to enter the workforce. What differentiates our training from most other on-line training options is the high level of direct mentorship students receive. We want you to succeed.
The second impediment students often encounter is a lack of opportunity to practice at a professional level. Ask anyone who has graduated university and started their career and they will tell you they learned vastly more in their first year on the job than in four years in school. Through LearnVFX, we connect students to opportunities for collaboration and practice at a PROFESSIONAL LEVEL, by providing challenging high-level assets for students to practice with. In most cases, there will be tutorials associated with these assets, but sometimes the assets will simply be provided as raw plates students may use as they please to improve their demo reels.
