Welcome to the first video in RocketJump Film School’s Visual Effects Track!
VFX Artist and director Clinton Jones, RocketJump co-founder Freddie Wong, and VFX Artist Eli Cuevas talk a little bit about the VFX work that went into the one-take video, covering the shooting, compositing, and rotoscoping the explosion shot.
The best way to learn VFX is to practice using your tools--over and over again--until you've mastered them and understand what they can be capable of.
We're not just going to show you how to recreate or copy certain shots or effects--we want to teach you what tools and concepts actually go into those effects and how they work, so you can apply any number of them to your own films in a variety of ways.
This way, we can give you the skills to not just be proficient at a program or a specific kind of effect, but to be inventive, intuitive, and the ability to make confident, well-informed creative decisions for your story.
