Gain experience with traditional arts, computer animation, and cinematic storytelling skills in a professional, student environment. To reflect the nature of the 3D industry, students have the opportunity, during their year at VFS, to focus on one of the following areas of specialization: Animation, Modelling and Visual Effects.

What You’ll Learn

  • Learn the basics of a 3D pipeline to gain insight into the different areas of production.
  • Apply your 3D skills to storytelling in our Pre-visualization class as you further advance your knowledge of the craft.
  • Narrow your focus by choosing one of three streams: animation, modeling or VFX while you plan your final reel in the pre-production classes.
  • Enter into the studio component of the program and start production on your demo reel alongside industry mentors who will guide you to the finish line.
  • Work with faculty and engage in the production process as you iterate and refine your shots. One on one feedback and regular group reviews make for a true studio experience.
  • Light, render and composite as you put the final tweaks on your project for industry night – your debut to local industry and beyond.

A recent graduate of the Writing for Film and TV program, I was working in the oil industry prior and have three kids, so it wasn't exactly a piece of cake to just drop everything and follow a dream. I talked to the head of the department several times before coming (Michael Baser - very helpful and eminently personable), asking hard questions and realizing this would ultimately be a leap of faith. I don't regret it for a second. My experience was that the teachers cared deeply about us, the quality of our writing, and our ultimate success as professionals. I've been writing for years, but I still learned a TON at VFS - not only how to write, but how to effectively network within the industry and, most importantly, how to discipline my writing habits and structure myself for the actual business of writing. And I walked out with a wicked writing portfolio, with samples across multiple media formats from film to TV to advertising and beyond. But keep in mind, this isn't the typical post-secondary education-by-spoon-feed; it's real-world and intensely practical. You only get out if you put in. I can't speak for all departments, but the Writing dept runs a fantastic ship!
