Real or Fake?

BA (Hons) Visual Effects

Real or Fake?

An entertaining session that provokes a lively discussion asking if the images that we see in cinemas and on TV are real or fake. We preselect a series of images or clips from movies, TV shows or commercials (adverts), watch the clip, analyse it as VFX artists, and ask the question “is that real or fake?”
