Filmmaking and VFX Foundations
Certificate III in Visual Arts CUA31120
Film and Visual Effects Foundations is designed to introduce the students to the many entry-level career opportunities for creative professionals, film production crews and post-production artists. This course gives students an understanding of the creative potential of the processes and tools used in the film production and post-production industries.
The course covers the fundamentals of film production and post-production including:
- Story and script development
- 3d Pre-visualisation and shot planning
- Using cameras, lighting, and other film equipment
- Working safely on film sets
- Sound editing (conducting ADR)
The course is focused on learning how to create a short screen production based on a brief. Students will develop a concept, write a script, create storyboards, and edit together an animatic (a moving storyboard).
After learning several editing and compositing based VFX techniques, students will then plan the live shoot through the creation of a 3d visualisation of the shooting environment and action. Students will get hands on experience of assisting with camera shoots on a live set. This will include acquiring all the knowledge on how to use digital video cameras and conduct oneself safely on a live set. Finally, students will perform the compositing, editing and other post-production processes needed to create the final film.
Film and VFX Foundations serves as a valuable bridge to further study in film production, visual effects, and post-production. Graduates leave with a portfolio of work, knowledge, and skills useful in many other multimedia and design areas.
