School of Design & Media
Have you caught The Ferryman: Legends of Nanyang - iQiyi’s highly-anticipated first Southeast Asian Original and exclusive series? Our students from Digital Visual Effects, Animation and Motion Graphics Design had the opportunity to contribute to different areas in this production in our collaboration with our industry partner, GHY Culture and Media!
Catch Ferryman: Legends of Nanyang on iQiyi NOW!
Our Visual Effects students participated in the R&D and VFX Production phases during their Final Year Project working on 10 episodes and completed more than 200 Visual Effects (VFX) shots including FX simulations, gunshots and more! Some even had their internships with GHY!
During the early stages of Research & Development (R&D), they helped develop look and visual effects techniques.
Their roles also included working on VFX shots & assets as well as producing during VFX Production. Shots work ranged from 3D tracking, Rotopaint & Chroma Key, Compositing, to 2D FX compositing and Houdini FX simulation.
In addition, during post-production, our students (including 2 from Animation) who had their internship at GHY, helped with work on Ferryman’s reel!
