Virtual Production (VP) is a rapidly growing area that capitalizes on evolving technology. By combining CGI, game-engines, and virtual reality technologies, VP enables completely new ways of making film and TV. The creative possibilities are endless – from digital filmmaking, visual effects, bringing CGI characters to life using real-time game engines, to aligning virtual worlds with motion capture volume.  VP techniques impact many core disciplines within filmmaking including cinematography, production design, visual effects (VFX), animation, directing and many more. Sheridan’s Virtual Production: Motion Capture Technician will introduce you to the core technical and filmmaking skills required to work on a VP project using an LED stage driven by Unreal Engine. Central to developing an understanding of how to work on a virtual production is access to an LED stage and on-set training, combined with the core skills and knowledge required to work as a member of a virtual production team. This micro-credential offers both theoretical and practical opportunities for learning delivered through weekly online seminars and hands-on workshops at the Sheridan Screen Industries Research and Training Centre (SIRT), Stage 10 Pinewood Toronto Studios.

Participants will need access to:

Participants will be expected to be on location at the SIRT Virtual Production Studio for mandatory scheduled practice with Unreal Workstation(s), Digital Cinema Camera, and LED Wall.
