The new ARTFX Masters in Cinema was born from the need to create strong bridges between classic cinema professions and those from the digital world. Its objective is to bring these two training courses together to allow greater synergy in their daily practice, from writing to filming and from post-production to broadcasting. The Master trains “cinema professionals” capable of both telling stories and also making them through the most modern digital tools. They are highly sought after profiles in the production of films and series today.

Job Market

Over the past twenty years, cinema has changed dramatically with the advent of digital technology. On the one hand, the visual effects led to greater creativity. On the other hand, the production of films and series has become more complex and enriched thanks to digital tools, cameras, editing and calibration software and digital projectors. Finally, digital platforms offer a much wider distribution. To support these profound upheavals, traditional cinema professions have had to change their daily practices and new professions have been born, directly linked to new digital practices.

Main trades prepared:

  • 1st Assistant Director

  • DIT (Digital Imaging Technician)

  • Set Designer

  • Previz Artist

  • Screenwriter

  • Environment Artist

  • Post production Manager

« The future of cinema also depends on image and digital effects. This training aims to give all the keys to become Assistant camera / director / decorator, scriptwriter, dialogue writer with an understanding of the possibilities offered by VFX (preview, real time, lighting…).

To give an example, the teams of the iconic series (produced by Disney and broadcast by Disney plus) called 'Mandalorian' use all the new technologies of cinema. Closer, there is also the daily series of France 2 'Un si grand soleil' which is very cutting edge. Their methodology is a real source of inspiration for ARTFX.
