Virtual Worlds: Teaching the Construction of Virtual Environments

As technological developments and digital imagery become part of everyone’s lifestyles and cultures, the educator must be in a position of providing students with the tools and knowledge base to meet the new demands of society. Digital filmmaking, video games and other emerging venues require new forms of technique and content. The 3D Animation curriculum at Vancouver Film School addresses many aspects of the new virtuality through the combination of 3D and 2D effects.
