Rebecca Albrecht

Special FX for Film & TV | 2017

"The University of Bolton’s Special Effects course is fantastic way to explore new creative skills to an industry standard. I have especially enjoyed being able to pick my own projects and really tailor the brief to my needs; allowing me to explore everything from 3D modelling, sculpting and 3D printing to creating snap moulds for makeup prosthetics. It’s also great to have access to a variety of staff with industry knowledge on hand, to really help make your projects next level and ready for your graduating portfolio."
