Visual Effects and Motion Graphics with Professional Practice

Digital media practitioners are the architects and implementers of the technological revolution in digital media and are in great demand throughout industry, commerce and the public sector. Our Digital Media courses combine computer technology and creative design skills by integrating aspects of IT, media, design and communication. Visual Effects (VFX) is one of the fastest growing creative industries in the world and it’s an area where creativity meets high technology. At Brunel, we combine a study of visual effects with motion graphics so you can study a wide range of subjects spanning animation, storytelling, graphic design, 3D graphics and animation, and compositing. You’ll create state-ofthe-art motion graphics, visual effects and 3D for digital TV, film online and other applications. We believe our course is unique in the UK in its aims to develop both the technical and the creative skills required by the visual effects and motion graphics sector within the entertainment and creative industries. Our course will suit those seeking a varied career path with a variety of visual and technological skills. You’ll develop your individual creative ability along with technical knowledge and practical skills. You’ll also develop an understanding of historical, cultural, political, legal, business, economic and technological contexts; the visual arts, graphic design, film and related fields and their application in the VFX industry; emerging computing and communication hardware and software; and how to work with clients, collaborators and users. If you opt for a sandwich course, you’ll go on a year’s industrial placement supported by our on-campus Professional Development Centre. While you are on the placement, you’ll develop a portfolio of commercial work. Our location close to central London, the world’s centre for the VFX and design industries, means that there is a wide variety of placements available. Our graduates are working as motion designers, 3D artists, post-production engineers, compositors and digital media content creators. As well as taking on fulltime employment, many graduates become freelancers or set up their own companies.
