Perfect the process to create computer-generated effects for cinema and TV

A course by Ramon Cervera

We witness acts of magic every day, both on the small and the big screen. The development of visual effects in shots for film and television has reached a point where we often find it difficult to distinguish reality from visual illusion. This is all thanks to VFX composers such as Ramón Cervera, who, in his more than 20 years of experience, has brought together almost 80 films and series with Telson studio, generating the illusion that all the imagery comes from the original filming.

In this online course, discover the entire in-depth process to make a VFX shot, from the original idea, the filming approach, and the shoot itself, to the post-production phase, more specifically, the composition with Nuke, where you put all the elements together, both filmed and digitally generated, for a VFX shot that could be used in a movie or series.

Who is this online course for?

Creatives and lovers of film and television who are just starting out or want to delve further into the creation of computer generated effects and have a great interest in VFX processes.

Requirements and materials

Although Ramón explains how to use Nuke step by step, you need some notion of how to use its interface and be familiar with concepts such as alpha, keyframes, and color correction.

In terms of materials, you need a graphics tablet and a computer that meets the minimum Nuke requirements (indicated on the Foundry website, where you can also download the program).
