Prepare yourself to get into the first CardanFX Technical Director Diploma (CTDD).

Our program is based on working for the film and videogame industries and yes, we do it very well.
This program will teach you everything you need to know to start working in any kind of production requiring complex or natural phenomenal visual effects (Particles, Destruction, Explosions and VFX).

The software we will be using is called Houdini and is being developed by sideFX software.
You will receive scheduled classes every week, providing you with the technical and theorical knowledge required for your success (these classes could include art, physics, software, math, etc.).

Every week you will need to work on a very specific project(s), (modeling, animation, textures, drawing, simulations, etc.).
Once completing your project(s) (Homework), we will be reviewing it live so that we can share different points of view and receive feedback from other artists.
This process will last until the end of the course.
