Animation & Visual Effects Facilities

Animation & Visual Effects Facilities

The Academy’s facilities are designed to prepare you for a career in the Animation & Visual Effects industry, with equipment such as the green screen to help you achieve your desired effect. Our hands-on learning environment creates a culture that supports curiosity, investigation, and production.

Online students are also hands-on, as they engage in discussions and activities through the online platform, social media, and real-time streaming of our events. Both online and onsite studio environments are equipped to give you the skills you need to create the Animation & Visual Effects career of your dreams.

Remote Lab (rLAB)

The Remote Lab (rLAB) at the School of Animation and Visual Effects enables students to transform students’ own devices (e.g., laptop and desktop computer) into a powerful lab workstation that equips with major VFX software (Maya, Nuke, Mari, Substance, Zbrush, etc.).
