Diploma in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics (DVEMG) JAE Code: S39





I have read the module synopses in detail and believe that the course is well balanced, offering a solid and very necessary foundation year in art and aesthetics and some highly relevant Year 2 & 3 modules that will provide the students with useful practical knowledge that they can build on in a variety of VFX and Motion Graphics vocations.

The market for motion content will experience tremendous growth as new media devices; like the Apple iPhone, Sony PSP and the Google Phone drive these content within easy reach of busy professionals, executives and students on the go. This is where the expertise of visual effects and motion graphics artists would come in to better package these content for consumption by their intended audiences.
