Lost Boys Studios | School of Visual Effects (http://www.lostboys-studios.com/) is proud to announce the graduation of Class 9 of it's Visual Effects Production Diploma Program.

Our full-time Visual Effects program is an intensive study of creating photo-realistic VFX, primarily using Autodesk's Maya and The Foundry's NUKE, supplemented by other specialty software to provide more exploratory options.

"It was a pleasure and an honour to have shared the studio with such a creative and skilled set of individuals.  The level of support and camaraderie that I witnessed amongst the students was unprecedented.  They banded together, inspiring and pushing each other to higher levels.  We are very proud of their achievements and welcome them to the Lost Boys Alumni. I am not surprised that this class has also enjoyed 100% placement."  - Mark Bénard | Founder & VFX Director

"Lost Boys Studios | School of VFX helped me to be where I am since the first day of the class, because their program is designed to prepare us to work for the VFX industry. We do more than just projects and VFX exercises. We do portfolio and web preparation, we do industry studies and studio tours and we learn what the industry expects from us and that helps us to be prepared.  Also, the LBS staff is always promoting us, showing our work to several studios and people around and that's why most of the LBS graduates can find a job very easily."

"Besides the best program, and the best teachers in Vancouver, the school has unique qualities in the market. The total immersion within the projects is a very strong point, the lostboys actually live the projects, and participate in its conception to its completion by traveling all fields of vfx.

Another strength is the way which teachers  and staff treat students, is an almost paternal relationship, where the difficulties of each student are taken into consideration. Teachers are present to answer questions and allay anxieties whenever we have problems.  I feel that the school was like a home for me, where i spent most of my time and always had access to the best content possible, from best books and bluerays to the best tutorials and workshops.  Besides of course the company of my classmates that even today are great friends. Oh, and even had my own key so I could spend day and night on my crazy projects."

"When I first came to Lost Boys I worried about my lack of computer graphics experience as well as my struggle with the English language. The way Lost Boys records all lectures and demo's made it possible for me to study at my own pace and better understand the complex techniques involved in the creation of VFX. I highly recommend Lost Boys | School of VFX."
