What our students say

“It was valuable to see the structure of MPCs VFX pipeline and the skills needed to enter the industry and the expectations of my work.“

Amelia Sturdy

“I have found this course has increased my confidence moving forward and has helped to connect me to a great group of people.“

Josef McGrath

“The instructor was particularly helpful and willing to do further 1:1 sessions that helped further my knowledge, and not only within the confines of the academy course work but in my personal work as well. I can see how I can use the LOD method to progress my own work and future works.“

Kayleigh Wadlow

“As someone who has not set foot in the industry it was extremely helpful to work within a set workflow and pipeline and it definitely helped to get a sense of the responsibility you have when you are part of a team working on an asset which will be passed down to other departments.“
