Way back in 1902, when Georges Méliès had his spaceship crash on the moon, the film industry realised that boundaries between reality and imagination, within the scope of what could be portrayed on film, had become visibly thinner.

Over time the visual effects (VFX) potential, the techniques through which images are created or modified, has developed to the point that anything that can be imagined can also be reproduced in a realistic way.

Over the last decade visual effects have been implemented in film productions which traditionally would not employ them; this openness highlighted the need to create suitable teaching courses in order to train professionals in this field.

The CSC Visual Effects Supervision & Production program offers an intensive study plan, designed to train highly qualified professionals, whose skills will enable them to meet the needs of the entertainment industry productions.

Graduates will be part of a new VFX experts generation who will be able to support, manage and carry out development and post-production of all special effects contents.

The program will put the necessary emphasis on all stages of production, from the film script, to the screenwriting and the storyboard, also focusing on the relationship between traditional photography, VFX and CGI.

Students’ demo-reel will be implemented thanks to cutting-edge softwares, techniques and technologies and an accurate tutoring program.

The main goal is to prepare artists who are able to manage and solve problems, fit their abilities to the production requests and make the most of the available tools, creating a perfect synergy between technology and creativity.

Thanks to a training not limited to the mere use of softwares, and the interaction with other courses of the school, students will have the chance to understand how real-life productions work and therefore be ready, by the end of the three-year course, to successfully enter the labour market.

Renato Pezzella is a digital advanced technologies consultant for cinema and tv.

From the early experiences as a dj to the familiarity with local radios and Tvs as a pioneer, his background of challenges and professional evolutions led him to an active involvement in the launch of a new tv channel called Videomusic, in 1984.

This adventure refined his skills in the advanced (for that time) tv post-production, giving him the opportunity to work for the major companies in the audiovisual sector.

Renato Pezzella has been collaborating with the major art directors to create innovative products, such as the ‘Italia 90’ soccer world cup theme song.

His technical-creative skills led him to be chosen as a designer and then as a manager of the Stream TV digital production center. In this center innovative technologies were developed to create one of the first video-on-demand systems, caracter capture and animation, and the first completely tapeless acquisition and server editing system.

After Stream TV sale, he became a global consultant for graphics systems and digital images management, and collaborated with various companies creating  Mediaset digital playout, several sports on TV graphics, and a satellite broadcaster with 60 digital channels in Baharain.

He is a green screen filming supervisor for leading advertising production companies and a specialist in digital graphic compositing systems.

Since 1992 he has been sharing his experiences at the CSC.
