Welcome to spherevfx
World Leader in Visual Effects Training



We offer training in 3D, compositing and visual effects tools and techniques. Choose from a range of software including Maya, Modo, Mari, Arnold, RenderMan, Nuke and Hiero. We also offer technique based courses for areas such as Core Skills, Cinematography and Stereo.

All our training can be mixed and matched enabling you to train on one or multiple disciplines within a single course. Unlike other training companies you no longer have to wait for a pre-set course, let us know when you want to train and we’ll book you in. Finally you can train with us or onsite at your location.

We can train whole departments, small teams or individual artists/freelancers - no group is too big or too small. We can train you on or alongside a live project which has the benefit of enabling you to continue working while we train. You can also provide your own footage or use ours.

We’ve had the privilege of training artists from some of the top visual effects companies in the world including: Industrial Light and Magic, Framestore, DreamWorks Animation, MPC, Digital Domain, Cinesite, Animal Logic, Ghost VFX, Hybride, Luma Pictures, Pixomondo, Prime Focus, Sony Pictures Imageworks, and Weta Digital.
