Question: what courses would i have to take to get into the special effects buisness

Keywords: , , , ,

  1. Do you mean the CGI side or the practical side?

    For CGI I would aim for Computer Science qualifications, and then get experience with the BBC effects teams (just write to them and ask) or maybe with a games development company. You can either get vocational qualifications (work and study at the same time) or go straight for a degree and see if that makes you more attractive to special effects companies. Here’s a taste of some of the courses that are out there, but a quick google search should help you find more:
