Short course


Delivered online via Zoom on Thursday 28th May (10.00 - 12.00) 

Andrew Schlüssel will talk about the importance of using reference material when creating artwork in CG, specifically in reference to visual effects and animation. This ranges from photos and observation needed for individual projects to the data that is captured on set needed for visual effects work on Hollywood films.

Andrew Schlüssel is the Director of Global Talent Development at Framestore in London, where he leads and creates strategy for all training at their studios around the world. He has taught classes and written curriculum for animation and VFX over the past 20 years in colleges, universities, companies and non-profits internationally as well as online. He has worked as an artist in visual effects for film, video games, iPad apps, music videos and was the cinematographer on an independent feature. Teaching classes at Pixar helped lead him to his role as Education Manager at DreamWorks Animation and Global Head of Training at MPC prior to his role at Framestore.
