The Visual Effects pathway aims to develop technical and creative competency in individuals who can generate industry standard manipulated moving image. They will engage in a comprehensive VFX skills training that covers the several aspects of film production and post production. This is a unique opportunity for collaborating and getting a broad perspective on the film making process through key crossovers with the Digital Film Making course. VFX, within the interdisciplinary environment at Srishti, allows for extending known boundaries of manipulated moving image and nurturing imagination and creativity.
