VISUAL EFFECTS COMPOSITING
Your future in
is just weeks away
Visual effects studios are in desperate need of creative, skilled VFX compositors. With InFocus Film School's Visual Effects Compositing course, you can join the fastest-growing field in entertainment in just 24 weeks.
THE FUTURE OF POST-PRODUCTION
Just what is
VFX compositors are the key to the stunning effects seen on screen today. They combine the footage filmed on set with 3D elements or other CGI. Compositors also alter, fix, and enhance footage to better match the director’s vision. All of the final pieces of a scene are assembled by compositors, who can transform a shot into something spectacular that initially was not possible. Compositing is now the most important role in post-production, required on nearly every modern film and video project.
The fastest-growing field in entertainment
high demand, and it ain't slowing
While a film or television show might have only a single editor, often dozens of compositors are required, even for a simple TV commercial. With the ever rising demand for visual effects, studios are in desperate need of new compositors.
With lots of work to do and not enough people to do it, salaries are high and professional growth is inevitable. With the rise of remote workplaces, you don't even need to live near a studio anymore.
Learn employable, relevant skills
Learn rotoscopy, keying, and advanced 3D compositing in Nuke, the industry standard software for VFX compositing. Skills are cemented through intensive projects involving object removal, green screen elements, camera tracking and stabilization, set extension, dynamic effects, colour correction, and more.

The course ran for only a few months, and I was surprised and impressed by how much material was fit into that time! As fast paced as it was, it was never too overwhelming and I quickly gained confidence in my ability to use the tools and techniques I was taught. The success of this course was due to the fantastic teachers/industry mentors brought in to share their specific areas of insight and walk the students through each lesson step by step.
I came in with literally zero experience, and a month after graduation I got a job as a compositor in VFX studio here in Vancouver. The best thing about InFocus is that it's small and humble, so everyone up to the director of the school are very approachable and ready to help. They are really there to make sure you succeed, it's great. Also, I got plenty of industry connections and insights through mentors that teach evening classes.
Having no experience, I decided to take the program at InFocus Film School. I have learned so much, and was given the right advice for my portfolio- from industry professionals!
Shortly after graduation I was offered a position at Mainframe Studios. I want to thank the entire staff at InFocus for working their magic. I am still to this day very thankful and highly recommend it!
The instructors are clearly not about it for a salary, they truly care about you and your success. I thought many times that I could teach myself, but having a mentor to guide you really makes the difference. They teach you from the ground up. I felt I was well prepared when I got my first job. I am very fortunate to have gone to this school.
