Visual Effects Workshop 2015

Fifty pupils from Bishopbriggs Academy enjoyed a fantastic morning at the Glasgow Film Theatre attending a visual effects workshop as part of their media course.  Pupils were given an insight into the world of special effects in films and adverts. Mike Kelt from special effects film company, Artem, demonstrated some of the techniques used to provide a range of dramatic special effects including rain, snow and fire as well as robotics and puppets.  Pupils were also given the opportunity to view some of the equipment, prosthetics and models used and one lucky pupil, Keir, was made up with a ‘bullet hole’ on his forehead!
