You mightn’t think Titanic, Forest Gump and Star Wars have much in common. But think about it. Fantastical imaginings are vividly brought to life in each film with spectacular visual effects, otherwise known as VFX. A few years ago Irishman Richie Baneham won an Oscar for VFX for his work on Avatar. His alma mater Ballyfermot College of Further Education has just announced that from September we’ll be providing the first dedicated VFX & 3D Technology course in Ireland.

BCFE is delighted to announce a new Higher Nation Diploma course in Visual Effects and 3D Technology.Visual Effects (VFX) involves combining live action and digitally created images together to create everything from placing real actors on a surreal set interacting with Avatars on Pandora through to adding fire into a fireplace scene in a TV commercial. The VFX industry is a growing sector within post-production companies in Ireland. On successful completion of the course students may seek employment and a career in 3D/CGI/VFX either locally or internationally.
