VFX course meets the industry

Annual Industry Liason

The BA (Hons) VFX course held its annual Industry Liaison group meeting in Soho, London, alongside top VFX companies. The meeting gave the course a chance to seek advice and comments from leading professionals on how the course is progressing.Representatives from Cinesite (Assassin’s Creed, The Revenant), Double Negative (Avengers: Infinity War, Blade Runner 2049), Framestore (Doctor Strange, SS-GB), top architectural visualisation company Hayes Davidson, Lola Post (Fortitude, Ripper Street), MPC (Jungle Book, Ghost in the Shell) and The Mill (VFX, VR, Interactive, Animation work), attended to look at students work and advise on projects.

They were joined by national organisations UK Screen Alliance and Creative Skillset, who gave an invaluable wider perspective on the job market and government policy.

Course Leader Saint John Walker said “We were so fortunate to have such a great spread of VFX employers in the room. We’ve got some great ideas for new projects and a strong vision of what the industry is looking for. It was great to get so much positive support for what we are doing and to have such a great turnout of talent”.
