Summary

MA Visual Effects (VFX) at London College of Communication is taught as a specialist subject within the broad and experimental visual practice of animated visual communication. The course explores the theoretical and historical contexts that inform how audiences perceive reality and photorealism. You'll be introduced to a range of technical and conceptual approaches to VFX animation. You’ll also explore technologies and processes by producing short-form animation across the VFX spectrum, to set briefs. Real world studio lighting and camera workshops will provide a tangible foundation for the principles of virtual digital 3D VFX. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant and Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).

**What can you expect?**

As students on the course, you'll be encouraged to see yourself as a specialist in your field that can push the boundaries of what’s possible within the world of VFX animation. You’ll develop high-end specialist skills underpinned by a breadth of technical knowledge. Throughout the course, you will create unique media and immersive experiences, whilst developing your own distinct style. London is the home of world-leading practitioners in VFX; you will benefit from lectures and masterclasses from visiting directors, producers and cinematographers and have access to LCC’s TV studios. You'll learn the principles of lighting and shot framing and how it works in practice as well as translating the properties of light, texture and lensing within the digital realm. This course also supports progression to research at MPhil/PhD level, as well as to advanced self-directed practice.
