SUBJECT PROGRAMS

Hollywood movies and TV commercials are not made by just using one program. SF Film School education is not just centered around Maya but around visual effects and realistic compositing.

MAYA

24 Weeks

3D COMPUTER ANIMATION / MODELING / SIMULATION / RENDERING SOFTWARE

Autodesk Maya which commonly known as MAYA software is 3D computer graphic software. It is used to create realistic 3D models, 3D applications, animated movies, TV serials, technical-non-technical commercials, 3D video games, visual effects and many other effects. Before the use of advanced tools like Autodesk Maya traditional way of animation i.e 2D animation was used. But now a day’s most of the film industry uses Autodesk Maya to deliver high quality in 3D Animations. These days Autodesk Maya is actively used in the film industry, video gaming industry, real estate, automobile industry and many other industries to produce realistic 3D as well as visual effects.

ZBRUSH

zbrush.png

12 Weeks

3D COMPUTER MODELING / SCULPTING SOFTWARE

ZBrush is the most advanced 3D sculpting program out there. What separates it from other 3D tools is that ZBrush mimics traditional sculpting techniques all done digitally on a computer.
Sculpting in ZBrush is akin to working with a digital ball of clay, shaping it as if you were working by hand. The sculpting tools from ZBrush allow a wide degree of creative freedom. Not only can artists create more organic and detailed models using ZBrush, they can often arrive at the finished product much faster than with other programs.

HOUDINI

24 Weeks

3D DYNAMIC SIMULATION SOFTWARE

Explosions, earth-shattering destruction, glittering swirls of magic these are the unavoidable spices of film and television. Today, much of these effects are created by a single tool Houdini. But Houdini’s influence stretches even further. Though traditionally favoured by the effects departments, Houdini is a 3D and visual effects package that handles everything from modeling, animation, effects, character effects, lighting, and compositing. It has been embraced for its versatility and powerful capabilities.

PORTFOLIO

SF Film School instructors continuously work hard to produce the best VFX artists.
These are the individually made demo reels of SF Film School students, future leaders in the industry.

All the works from SF Film school students are created individually.
Most of them never used any 3D application before they study in our school, but with systematic education and their own passion, they can create what they want to see.
So, the quality of the portfolio is getting better and many CG productions from South Korea and hollywood pay attention to our school gradually.
