General description

This course is intended for professional visual effects artists, specifically team leaders and supervisors who want to learn how a VFX Sequence Supervisor operates in the context of a large scale production. Most of the visual effects examples are based on the Pirates of the Caribbean III, which was created by ILM under the supervision of François Lambert. The content will cover planning, organization, execution, production workflow, and pipeline with some examples of good and bad practices. By the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to understand the content and the daily context pertaining to a VFX Sequence Supervisor job in a large production studio.
