Visual Effects

120 Credits | 2 years | Start date: Autumn 2017 | Degree: Higher Education Diploma

Do you want to work as the future visual effect-artist in the industry of film and advertising in Sweden or abroad? If your answer is yes then we are looking for somebody like you. During the two years of studying we take you through the processes in post production and will put you in situations where you have to cooperate and collaborate with different professions within film and advertising productions.

We use different software as the tool to re-create ideas and our goal is to navigate you through the processes and the techniques behind visual effects. You will learn how to solve upcoming issues through set time frames also how to create your workflow more efficient and produce photorealistic production quality material.

One programme -two tracks

We specialize in the collaboration between the 3D artists and the Compositors who works closely together in real working situations. Taking this to consideration we keep the two profiles under the same roof; Digital Compositing and 3D visualization. Common for these profiles are courses where you learn the different production phases, time estimation, group dynamic, camera techniques and imagery. Below you can read more about what courses are included in the two profiles.

Digital compositing

You focus on the post production of moving pictures in the film- and advertising productions in a creative way also in cost effective and production realistic way. You gain insight in the different parts of post production and learn how to manage the tools you need. For example remove ropes holding an actor up in the air or produce set extensions and how to integrate rendered 3D in live action material.


If you choose 3D visualization you produce photo realistic 3D materials in a pre-set time frame with high demand on quality. The productions you set up can be used as both stills and moving images for advertising- and or film productions. This can for example include modeling, texturing, shading, lighting or animating objects and environments.


The programme is located to Campus i12 in Eksjö – one of Sweden's primary educators within post production. Eksjö is situated about 60 km east of Jönköping. The lectures are conducted mostly by people from the industry which also means that you have a big opportunity to gain a big network throughout the course of your education. We have an international perspective through for example internationals lecturers and collaborations with companies in other parts of the world.

Meet Zsófia from Hungary

The visual effects programme is located in Eksjö, a small town 60 km east of Jönköping, and I have loved it here. We have been a tight group, a mix of international and Swedish students.
