Stage 2 Games VFX

Search For A Star + Sumo Digital Rising Star 2019

in partnership with

Development Project

Students are asked to create an original game-ready effects sequence for use in UE4. All stylistic, narrative, thematic and aesthetic considerations are at the artist's discretion. Students will need to show evidence of their full development process, from pre-production, production and post-production, through to the final presentation.

Full project briefs will be released to registered students on 29th October 2018.

This project should demonstrate your ability as a VFX artist to conceive, develop, create and present an innovative and balanced visual effect. The process that leads to the result is as key as the final sequence itself; the creativity and motivation of the final piece should be evident from the foundation work.

This project is designed to emulate the aspects of a studio development process, including documenting and following a production pipeline.

Please note this jam is only open to students who have registered to take part in Search For A Star / Sumo Digital Rising Star 2019 - further details on the challenge series can be found over at Grads In Games.
