The BFX Competition is on now!
Following our Fusion-funded trips across the country to publicise the event we now have ten teams (54 individuals) are living on campus as they work on producing a 30 second animated or VFX sequence. The teams, which were shortlisted from an original list of 23 are being mentored by professionals from top Soho studios; MPC, The Mill, Framestore, Double Negative, Cinesite and Hibbert Ralph Animation. The work being produced by the teams covers a range of styles and uses many different production techniques, including live action, green screen, 2D animation, 3D CGI, particle effects, real world simulation and everything in between!
For the competitors, the interaction with people from other HE institutions and the Soho studios has made everyone raise their game and focus on genuine professional practice. We are now just about halfway through; all the work looks amazing and is way beyond everyone’s expectations – which means that the screening in September at the BFX Festival should be a huge success!
