Adelaide, South Australia—Aspiring visual effects artists will have an opportunity to learn the basics of compositing through a new course offered by Rising Sun Pictures. Introduction to Compositing for Feature Films will be taught by RSP Senior Compositor Paul Kirwan, whose more than two dozen film credits include Gravity, The Great Gatsby, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Compositing is a fundamental skill for visual effects artists and the starting point for many visual effects careers. This intensive, 10-week course provides an introduction to Nuke, one of the industry’s most widely used compositing software, and grounding in day-to-day tasks performed by compositing artists with a focus on feature films.
