About the work

Michael is on our Level 3 VFX & Animation course and has been working on this project over the past year to produce pieces of work that are up to an industry standard and will give them a head start within their chosen sector.

Confetti prides itself on giving students an opportunity to work with industry professionals and tutors that have real life experience within their industries, the above work hopefully gives an insight into student life at Confetti.

Student Bio

Hi, my name is Michael I am 19 years old and a 2nd-year student for the level 3 VFX course at Confetti. I like doing 3D modelling and effects, particularly in this course style as it is the most fun and tailored to my style of art.

I plan to go to university to continue down this path and explore where I can go in the future in these areas of visual effects. The reason I like this is that I have always enjoyed making cool effects and like modelling with my hands as well but I did not get to do this much anyway. In the future, I would like to work on making films or tv shows like the fantastic beasts and show these skills in the future working for a company like ILM or Pixar.

I had very little experience with most visual effect’s formats and none with animation I had delved into modelling previously and what got me interested in the course. I have gone from no work to show to a full reel of work over the two years where I have learned new valuable skills in 2D and 3D from animating a sequence of events to creating a full 3d model environment and compositing real footage.

I have come a long way on this course and I hope to go further in the future learning more skills I can use.
