Your Best Choice in VFX Compositing Training

FX Ecademy is the brainchild of 25+ year Hollywood VFX veteran and pioneer, Steve Wright.
Compositing & VFX Expert

Steve has perfected many visual effects compositing techniques during his accomplished vfx career that he has shared in his two popular books on compositing: Digital Compositing for Film and Video, which is the industry bible for the sitting compositor, and Compositing Visual Effects: Essentials for the Aspiring Artist, which is a primer about the world of visual effects.

Teacher of Thousands

Steve began teaching visual effects full time in 2005 and has since trained thousands of VFX artists around the world in professional visual effects packages such as Nuke, Shake and Cineon.  He has taken his years of real-world compositing experience to design compositing courses that use a unique training paradigm to help our students internalize the lessons better than conventional teaching methods.
