Where will this get me?
Compositors are the masters of make-believe, responsible for creating the illusion of reality. They compose the final image in a VFX or motion picture sequence, creating VFX that make the impossible, possible!
Compositors often start out as rotoscope artists or in junior roles, but can rise to become mid-level, then senior compositors and compositing supervisors. From here the path is open to becoming a VFX supervisor.
Our MA Visual Effects production (Compositing) students have been successful, with two of our students accepted onto Industrial Light & Magic’s (ILM) Graduate programme following their studies. Escapees from our compositing courses have gone on to work at companies including Industrial Light & Magic, Framestore, Cinesite, DNEG, MPC, Milk VFX, Sky, Electric Theatre Collective, JellyFish Pictures and Pixomondo.
