What can VFX and animation offer to live-action filmmakers?

Demystifying the creative process, the art form and the terminology, this workshop will give you the information you need to expand your vision successfully!

Join for an illuminating evening with this talented group of panelists: Senior Lecturer Lala Rolls, Director Jo Luping, Director Loren Taylor and Director and Technical Artist, Raqi Syed.

  • Are you looking to include animation or VFX into your next project?
  • Do you want to save time and money by learning what you need to know beforehand?
