 Complete Assignment

 

After watching the tutorials your assignment is to make the shot your own by changing elements, composition and fx to make a different scene utilising the skills you have learned. Most of these shots can be changed or expanded and added to your showreel showing key skills to get a job. In certain scenes we remake an element using a different approach to learn different methods.

 Video session with Tutor

Your assignment is critiqued by your tutor who will look at your Nuke file as well as your final image. Anything you wish to know more about or didn’t quite understand can be asked in this 1 to 1 session. Nuke allows multiple methods of reaching a final image and your tutor will make sure you understand the pros and cons of different methods. The tutor will also make sure you know best practices when working in a team.
