Course Description

Media production is accelerating rapidly into massively hybrid virtual production workflows that marry the very best attributes of live action and reactive visual effects. With the integration of real time graphics rendering, camera and performance tracking, and full soundstage LED volumes, these skills are in high demand for production careers in the 21st century. Professional proficiency in on-set virtual production (OSVP) begins with core understanding of the creative and technical workflows from both a theoretical and operational perspective. In this 10-day virtual production in-person immersion created in partnership with Synapse VP, you will be exposed to game engine tools and techniques as well as workflow optimization, all with a focus on producing a full virtual production scene.
