Working on major franchises in VFX is the dream of many – but how do you get started & what does the job involve once you’re designing VFX on a Hollywood franchise? Raised in Adelaide, Nick took his love of drawing and of the Star Wars franchise to Sydney’s Walt Disney Animation Studio as a Senior Layout Artist. He later moved into CG animation working as the Environment Supervisor on Happy Feet before returning to Adelaide as a VFX Art Director at Rising Sun Pictures where he has worked on major international productions like Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

This session is available for general public bookings. Tertiary students, industry professionals and families are encouraged to participate and join the conversation!

Update: 21/07

In light of the COVID-19 lockdown beginning on July 21st, the Adelaide Film Festival Youth is disappointed to announce that the inaugural edition of the festival, due to begin on July 25th, will not proceed as planned. 
Safety is our primary concern.
We are consulting with SA Health and Department for Education to explore potential alternative presentation dates and modes, and encourage audiences to hold onto their tickets until contacted by our Box Office team.
