What you get:
Modern VFX is considerably broader and characterizes an entire industry that works with “special effects”, i.e. everything from CGI (computer-generated graphics), compositing (image processing) and motion capture (computer-processed motion recordings), to the various tools and software needed to create it. At a specialized level, it is usually one of these areas that you work with.
The education mainly leads to employment, but many animators & VFX artists are self-employed. Demand for the professional role can be found in industry, film, TV, advertising and, on behalf of Sweden, not least in the gaming industry.
