NUK305 – Project Masterclass: The Machine

• FXPHD: NUK305 – Project Masterclass: The Machine
• Tutor: Russell Dodgson

This course, taught by Russell Dodgson, is a fully production based course. It is designed to tie in directly with its companion course, MYA214: Production-based Lighting and Rendering being taught by Robert Harrington. The course will be dealing with a full vfx sequence shot bespoke for the course. The lessons will attack a variety of compositing tasks and will pay attention to how we view a sequence as a whole as well as concentrating on the minutia of each individual shot.

Sequence one: Firing bullets
