Outer space or the bottom of the ocean – make them your film sets! With visual effects (VFX), there are no limits for you to tell your story. Hardly any film, game or spot is made without the use of VFX these days.
Studying at Animationsinstitut gives you an artistic and technical education in the
implementation of VFX in films, games, and other formats. Our technologically sophisticated infrastructure allows you to learn all relevant techniques for VFX production.
You carry out your own projects and have the space and freedom to experiment in a variety of ways together with other Filmakademie students. Highly skilled lecturers support you, and even while studying you get to meet important players in the national and international industry.
While collaborating on VFX projects with other students you specialize in a specific role in the production process. As a VFX supervisor you account for the artistic realization of effects, while as a VFX artist you design digital worlds.
With your studies, you create the basis for your VFX career in the film and media industry. As a member of our team you contribute your personal strengths while becoming part of a lifelong network. VFX alumni of Animationsinstitut hold important positions in major international film studios and game companies.
The diversity of the students and their different perspectives create a unique environment you can learn and work in.Andreas Feix, Alumnus, Digital Compositor at Industrial Light & Magic
Our Visual Effects studies are suitable for technology-oriented world builders who already have gained experience in the field of CGI (Computer Generated Imagery), enjoy working on a computer and have an eye for detail.
You can gather experience in the field of post-production, ideally in a company that works a lot with VFX. Other options are advertising agencies, communication offices or even architecture offices.
During your studies, you already get in touch with your potential employers, so your career prospects are excellent, especially if you are willing to move for your work. Permanent positions are common as well.
