If you want to know how they make action & fantasy sequences look so realistic in movies, TV and games, come and learn the basics at VanArts for 5 full intensive days of Visual Effects this summer. Working directly with industry professionals who have worked on your favorite shows, you will learn how actors are shot against a green-screen and all of the fake CG-elements are composited in around them. This is also an excellent introduction to how we teach in our one-year program.

We regret that our summer intensives will not be held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
