VanArts and Side Effects Software are proud to announce the addition of professional training in Houdini as part of our Visual Effects Diploma for Film, TV & Games.  With this training now offered through the entire year alongside our traditional training in Maya, Shake and Photoshop, VanArts VFX graduates will have an even stronger edge in skill sets for employment.  The Visual Effects industry is still booming in Vancouver and elsewhere, despite the global recession.

"Vancouver's vibrant production community creates an ideal location for students learning about visual effects and animation," says Kim Davidson, President of Side Effects Software. "We are pleased that VanArts has established a strong training base for Houdini in the Pacific Northwest."

Applications are currently being accepted for full-time program start dates in September 2009 and March 2010.  Combining our updated VFX curriculum with the best teachers in the city and continued partnership with our local Vancouver industry and SIGGRAPH Chapter, there is no better time to jump on board.  Contact us today!
