Top-notch credits on your portfolio
Better industry connections
Benefits

We especially made this course for people who are switching from After Effects

Super concise, showing everything you need to get a job ASAP, while creating portfolio shots:

Software Essentials, Keyboard Shortcuts, Every Useful Node, Street Smart Techniques

Tracking, Roto, Paint Outs, Keying, Matte Painting, Color Matching, Beauty, 3D Nodes

 

Commercial Motion Design

(After Effects & Unreal)

Unreal is a great choice because it opens up all 3 industries (film, commercial & gaming!)

It’s fun & efficient because everything renders REALTIME!

Freelance is easier as a motion designer compared to VFX for numerous reasons.

Producing full motion design commercials opens up big budget projects, which is easier than starting a VFX Studio (it doesn’t require on-set camera shoots)

We can also help you get hired at a video production company / marketing agency, animation studio or by a big brand.

2. Portfolio

  • Let’s build you a portfolio like WizardVFX.com

  • Collaborate with Lendon and other members to build demoreel shots quicker and better than you could do on your own

  • 50 Professional VFX & Motion Design project files to upgrade your demoreel

3. Marketing

We have projects coming into WizardVFX and need your help!

Step by step procedure to quickly gather leads & bulk outreach / followup with decision makers to stand out (made 10x more efficient by our CRM software)
