Unreal Engine Masterclass Series: Building an Environment

The ability to create 3D computer imagery in real time is revolutionising the Film and TV industries.  Unreal Engine is the world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool.  It gives creators control to deliver cutting-edge content, interactive experiences and immersive virtual worlds and is key to current and future technologies and workflow challenges. The possibilities offered by physical sets augmented with CGI is demanding new skills of all creatives across the production and craft pipelines. These 4 x 1-day sessions can be undertaken as a series or stand-alone with each session offering a specific skill within the Unreal Engine pipeline.

The Edit Producing role combines a range of technical and production skills and is highlighted by ScreenSkills (2021) as an in-demand role within Unscripted production with shortages across the Post-production pipeline.
