Have you ever wondered how movie studios blow up planets, control forces of nature and make the impossible seem so real? Check out this demo reel of visual effects created by grads of Cap’s Digital Visual Effects program and come to the program’s open house on Monday, June 10 to find out. Program coordinator, Adam Sale will give an overview of the visual effects field and Cap’s Digital Visual Effects program before taking prospective students on a tour of Capilano U’s state-of-the-art Bosa Centre for Film and Animation.

“Visitors will get to see the three sound stages, which house a green screen and semi-permanent sets for filming,” says Sale. “I’ll also be showing the back alley set that is being built outside the Bosa Centre, the high-definition 3-D theatre, classrooms, and the various sound, foley and mixing rooms.”

Over the course of the two-year program, students acquire an arsenal of in-demand skills, while learning how to excel on a production team. Grads are proficient in 3D modeling, texturing, compositing, matchmoving and green-screen removal — essentially everything necessary to create amazing computer-generated effects merged with live action footage.
