The 3D Animation, VFX and Game Design industry is growing at a rapid pace and the need for highly-skilled, talented artists has never been greater.
From Guardians of the Galaxy and Game of Thrones, to Assassin's Creed and Halo, VFX and Game Design is everywhere. With the need to remain competitive in a constantly evolving landscape, it’s hard to know where to even begin.
You can go it alone and dig through online tutorials, pay outrageous tuition fees and waste time learning from teachers who aren’t industry relevant. Or you can save time and money with an optimised education that teaches industry proven techniques from artists working at major studios around the world.
From the basics of 3D Animation and VFX to the fundamentals of Game Design, this course is designed for those looking to confidently take their first step towards a career in Film and Game Design.
Covering a wide variety of skills our Foundations for Film and Game Design Diploma lays the groundwork for students so they can continue their studies and smoothly transition into our specialised Advanced Diplomas.

SOFTWARE WE TEACH
"CG Spectrum is incredible. I cannot recommend it enough."
The mentors at CG Spectrum are fantastic! The level of education I have received is unlike any other school I've come across. I have learned more in 9 months than most other students do in 2 years.
Strong foundations serves as the first stepping stone to understanding 3D and creating artwork for film and video games. This study period is mainly focused on creating 3D models, basic animations as well as developing textures and materials. These are core skills in the CG Industry and are relevant to all other areas.
Taking students growing modelling and texturing skills, we now expand into complex areas like character rigging for use in the Unreal Game Engine and utilise motion capture and animation to create a fully functioning character. They will also design environments for games, and create visual effects.
During this study period, you will work with your mentor on a final project and choose a specialisation. You can collaborate with other students on a group project or focus on your own work. The skills learned in this study period provides a pathway into our advanced diplomas.
"It’s your career success that matters."I applied to some companies with my updated reel and get the chance to be hired by a small studio named Dwarf-Labs where I did some animations for a CG commercial. Then I was hired by Ubisoft where I worked for the last release of one of their big franchise, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate!"
