Do you dream of a career working on blockbuster films such as Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy or The Lego Movie?
If you are currently studying visual effects or animation at a UK HEI (uni or art college) or recently graduated; then BFX is the competition for you…
BFX is a student competition designed to give you direct exposure to cutting edge practices and showcase your skills to some of the best supervisors, producers and artists in the VFX and animation industry.
As a team of five people, you will be tasked with creating a stunning 2D or 3D visual effects or animation sequence that is based on one of several supplied screenplays. The 7-week residential competition is based in Bournemouth over the summer from 13th July to 28th August 2015 (all accommodation is free and the team members are given a stipend to help with their cost of living expenses). In 2014, teams were mentored and judged by experts from Framestore, Double Negative, The Mill, MPC, PsyOp, Realise Studios, Hibbert Ralph Animation, ILM London, Outpost VFX, Glassworks and Blue Zoo.
Please note – Numbers are limited, so all applications will be subject to a shortlisting process and interview.
