With the increasing influence of cinema on the design and narrative common in modern day games, and the rising use of game technology in cinema - including new technologies such as Virtual Production - the worlds of game and film are becoming increasingly intertwined. In this course, students will learn about the tools and techniques of film production as they apply to gaming. From pre-production to sound and lighting techniques, camera tracking, compositing, editing and VFX, students will learn how to turn their games into cinematic masterpieces. Students will also apply these skills to the newest technology at the intersection of film and gaming, Virtual Production, and how game engines can be used to create digital environments that replace green screens for modern day filming.
