Filmmaking with Unreal Engine is a classroom course (in-person) designed for anyone looking to learn filmmaking and visual effects in Unreal Engine.

This course is a group-buy of course material from a variety of industry professional instructors, carefully curated to take you from beginner to mastery level. Some of this material will be from the Unreal Engine Fellowship Course from Epic Games that our team were selected to join during the pandemic. By the end of the course you’ll feel confident and skilled to be able to create a professional movie within Unreal Engine 4 and 5. It will also help to create a strong skill set for Virtual Production, which due to its nature of real time composition and live filming, will require quick thinking and Unreal Engine expertise. Virtual Production will be a separate course in the future.

Each part of the course takes 1 day to complete (8 hours) and there are currently 10 parts to the full course. More parts will be added over time to further improve your skillset. You’ll need to complete each part in order to progress through the full course. The course will be a classroom course with live instructors so that they can help you along the journey if you need help with anything.

If you already have some experience with Unreal Engine, talk to our instructor and you can join the course at your skill level.

At the end of the full course, you’ll be encouraged to make a short film movie using all the skills you’ve learnt and this movie will be viewed and critiqued by your peers for your self development.
