Commitment and excellence in Unreal Engine training
Image Campus achieves the prestigious title of Premier Unreal Authorized Training Center
We have been recognized as the first PREMIER authorized Unreal Engine center in the American continent.More information
The course introduces the theoretical and practical foundations used in carrying out dynamic simulations of the audiovisual industry. The recreation of visual effects such as fire, rain, tornadoes, tsunamis, explosions, smoke, particles, among others, are common in films, series and advertisements of recent decades. These hyper-realistic effects could not be achieved with traditional techniques, either due to cost or safety. For this reason, it is a highly demanded specialty in the industry that, through constant technological innovation, raises the bar when it comes to surprising the audience.
Develop the ability to observe and analyze natural physical phenomena and then simulate them.
Learn to use Houdini and Autodesk Maya, the main dynamics and simulation tools used in this industry.
Acquire good practices and a correct work flow to work within a production team.
Create a demo reel to present in the audiovisual industry.

What our graduates have to say
Image helps you develop your vocation and links you with the industry. It has specialized teachers in each area and the latest market trends. Always one step ahead of the rest.
Thanks to Image I was able to promote VFX, I participated in a call for a scholarship at the Vancouver Film School and I won it! I am now in Vancouver starting classes.
In Image I was able to expand my knowledge about 3D Modeling and it also allowed me to make a good network of contacts. I was always passionate about cartoons and video games, and thanks to the journey I got a job as a modeler for prints and animations. Both the professors and the second members were always available with all the patience in the world to clarify my doubts. That helped me a lot to progress.
Thanks to Image I was able to develop professionally as a 3D artist and make a living doing what I am passionate about. I learned to use the latest tools and techniques used today, which allow me to achieve high-quality work that meets the expectations of my clients. The teachers are excellent people and professionals.
