Using visual effects and computer-generated image worlds, the Visual Artist extends the expressive possibilities of creative film design and is an integral part of contemporary film production.
The Specialization in VFX & Animation offers students a wide-ranging course that covers everything from professional effects generation to the complete design of 3D animations. Students learn and work with industry-specific software and in standard workflows. In addition to technical know-how, the focus is on artistic and creative skills. Together with the students of the other specializations, VFX & Animation students first learn the technical and narrative foundations of film production and then implement them in hands-on projects, bringing the focus on the combination of photorealistic film images and digitally created elements.
In the VFX part of the program, students learn to implement computer-generated effects, sets, props and characters in cinematic material – from planning to supervision on set to compositing. The animation part of the program conveys character design, modeling, animation, texturing, lighting and rendering – and thus the entire production process of a 3D animation film. During the course of studies, students have the opportunity to follow their own interests and specialize.
