Description:The Digital Visual Effects program is the only two-year college diploma offering of its kind in Ontario. Facilitated at Centennial College's Story Arts Centre, it will provide you with the opportunity to master industry-standard techniques to produce the photo-realistic visual effects seen in films that would be impossible to capture with a live-action camera.

In this diploma program's courses, you'll learn to work with the various aspects of the filmmaking process and bring them together into a seamless final product while also developing your skills in industry-standard software. The Digital Visual Effects program will focus on the core skills to make you employable in the VFX industry and give you the ability to explain how visual effects contribute to the entire process of storytelling in motion pictures. You'll channel your efforts into demonstrating these concepts and core skills through a unique final project and produce a demo reel suitable for job application in the visual effects field.
