Nuke Visual Effects Compositing Workshop

with  Steve Wright

The training objective is to produce artists with employable skills so the curriculum proceeds in a logical order starting with basics then adds skills and techniques towards practical production work. The three courses integrate with each other to create a 6-week training continuum. This will hopefully encourage students to sign up for all 3 courses.


Key topics will begin with the theory of operation before starting the Nuke portion of the training. For example, the camera tracker segment will start with the science and math of camera tracking, followed by the training on the CameraTracker node. There will also be much foundational information normally overlooked by training institutions such as color theory, working in linear, digital images, file formats, affects of filtering, etc. 


The last class in the Advanced Course is a very exciting Demo Reel Workshop to guide students on how to prepare job-winning demo reels and websites. Each student gets to select 3 ShotKits™ from Steve's library of 26 that they can comp for their demo reels.  These ShotKits™ have all of the elements to comp a feature film quality shot.
