« 3D takes many different forms. It is sometimes clearly visible and stylized, like in animated films. It also knows how to be invisible when it is photorealistic. 3D is recreational and educational, it allows us to travel in time and to move in virtual spaces. I work with your mentors to create a relevant program that will shape you into recognized graphic designers. The curriculum will first ensure that you have a solid grasp on all the basics. Once this is done, my role is to help you increase your knowledge and find your place in the VFX jungle. »
