"New Student Work from Lost Boys Learning"
As of mid-May 2006 the first intake of students at Lost Boys Learning have completed their Term 1: Foundation studies and we are proud to share a taste of what they've accomplished. As relative newcomers to 3D Animation and Visual Effects training, the students dove in head first to meet the project-based learning challenges, including modeling, visual effects, compositing, broadcast design, and the piece de resistance, the photo-realistic insect project.
"In production we are always pushing our boundaries. My training reflects that theme by challenging the students to produce production quality work in a very short timeframe. By keeping our deadlines tight the students are learning how to prioritize their tasks and maximize efficiencies. Our emphasis is on creative problem solving. Our technical training through out Term 1: Foundation covered all the basics of the 3D and Compositing pipelines with a little extra elbow grease going into Shaders, Lighting and Rendering."
The students work one-on-one with Mentor/VFX Supervisor Mark Benard in the studio, and venture out into the daylight to compose and shoot background plates for projects. Training is delivered by a combination of demonstration videos, class discussion, lectures and hands-on exercises, combined with the individual projects.
There is a 2 Minute Quicktime Montage available on www.lostboys-learning.com" rel="external">www.lostboys-learning.com as well as further information about the school and program. There are only a few seats left in Septembers intake so those that are interested should not delay.

Stay tuned for future releases. For Term2: Intermediate we are exploring more complicated shots involving creatures and matte paintings/digital set extensions.
