Special Effects for Film and Television course highlights

Visual Effects & Special Effects for films are powerful storytelling tools that help us create more engaging stories in our video productions. Our highly practical Special Effects for Film and TV degree explores a wide range of specialist skills for the creation of physical and digital effects for film and TV. With fantastic facilities and industry-experienced staff, we’re dedicated to preparing you for a career that brings your imagination to life. 

Our course highlights include: 

  • Neill Gorton, multi-award-winning artist, designer and founder of the world-renowned Millennium FX company, is our Visiting Professor for Special Effects. His astonishing range of professional experience, knowledge of cutting-edge techniques and industry contacts brings enormous benefits 
  • Numerous opportunities to attend lectures from the likes of award-winning make-up artists like Nick Dudman, many FX studios like KMFX, and model-makers like Artem 
  • Individual tutor support and small group teaching for students. We believe that by minimising our course sizes, we can maximise our student to tutor ratio, allowing everyone the opportunity to maximise their learning. Not only will you receive a unique learning experience, but you will also benefit from a more concentrated one too 
  • Support and encouragement to research, analyse, design and develop special effects techniques so that you can take an idea from a brief or script scene and find the most time-efficient, cost-effective and visually impressive way to turn that vision into reality 
  • Television shows, films, music videos, adverts and theatre productions all rely on the magic of special effects to enhance their storytelling. Our BDes (Hons) Special Effects for Film and TV course is ideal if you wish to combine design creativity, physical model-making skills, special prosthetic make-up effects, and cutting-edge 2D and 3D computer modelling and prototyping in the creation of special effects for all these platforms.
