Aspiring visual effects artists have an opportunity to learn the basics of compositing through a new course offered by Rising Sun Pictures. Introduction to Compositing for Feature Film will be taught by RSP Senior Compositor, Paul Kirwan, whose more than two dozen film credits include Gravity, The Great Gatsby, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Compositing is a fundamental skill for visual effects artists and the starting point for many visual effects careers. This intensive 10-week course provides an introduction to Nuke, one of the industry’s most widely used compositing software, and grounding in day-to-day tasks performed by compositing artists with a focus on feature films.

 

The course is suitable for beginning artists, ages 13 and older, for experienced artists unfamiliar with Nuke, and for media educators who wish to learn current pipelines and software used in film production. Students will gain practical, hands-on experience and learn from a highly skilled working professional in a demanding, fast-paced and fun environment. The course includes a tour of RSP and a special presentation on the visual effects industry in the company’s theatre.

Course materials are supplied by The Foundry, developers of Nuke. Software, shots and lesson content are included.

 

The course covers

  • background to digital imagery, including file formats, colour-space and multi-channel images
  • the Nuke interface and basic compositing scripts
  • tracking, keying, filters, colour correction and layering operations
  • use of paint and rotoscoping for plate preparation and clean-up
  • compositing multi-channel CG renders
  • shot polish, including grain and lens artefacts
  • the basics of compositing

Commencing Tuesday, 13 October 2015, Introduction to Compositing for Feature Film consists of 10 three-hour class sessions from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm. Classes will be held at Rising Sun Pictures, Level 1, 180 Pulteney St, Adelaide SA 5000.
