The visual effects sector opens up a wide range of professional profiles dedicated to the design, generation and production of digitally created images to be produced and/or integrated in all types of audiovisual productions.
The VFX School offers students a comprehensive, creative and technical training, providing a solid foundation, both practical and formal, to enter the VFX industry.
We take advantage of the ESCAC environment to put this knowledge into practice in a real production system in constant interaction with the rest of the school’s film departments.
The VFX School is divided into two courses: the first is cross-cutting and will provide students with a generalist grounding in all areas of visual effects; the second is optional and free, with personalised training depending on the student’s profile and will encourage participation in projects in collaboration with other ESCAC departments. Although the second course is not compulsory, it is highly recommended so that the student leaves with even more specific and technical skills.
Upon completion of The VFX School, the student will have:
The VFX School is aimed at anyone who wants a comprehensive and intensive immersion in the world of visual effects in a real film and production environment.
It is not necessary to have a university entrance exam or previous qualifications, although it is recommended that you have a Baccalaureate, a Higher Grade Cycle or university studies related to the audiovisual sector.
It is also possible to enter with a video-reel that demonstrates the student’s knowledge and skills.
At The VFX School we believe in talent, so if you have no previous qualifications you can still apply. Afterwards, through a selection process and a personal interview, we will determine your aptitude for admission.
Students who come from Bachillerato and who have no previous higher education, will be able to access The VFX School by previously attending three intensive workshops on introduction to Film & VFX, 2D (Digital Compositing) and 3D (Modelling, texturing and lighting processes).
These workshops will also be recommended, but not compulsory, for those students with higher studies but without previous experience in the world of effects.
