Uni Connect partnered with Birmingham City University is hosting an online 2 week camp where sixth form and college students will explore how computer graphics are used in visual effects, gaining skills such as video compositing, animation and modelling. Whether interested in a career in the computer graphics industry or just looking to find out more about how visual effects are created, you can learn from BCU academics and industry experts that have worked on films such as Avengers and Harry Potter. The camp has a mix of live sessions from academics and students and time for you to work independently on your project in your own time, as well as an opportunity to take a closer look at university study and different career pathways.
