If you’re thinking about a career in the movie business or simply want to know more about how visual effects are created, Okanagan College has a summer boot camp for you.

OC is teaming up with Vancouver Film School to host a weeklong camp about visual effects, or VFX, illusions. The camp is scheduled for July 30 to Aug. 3 at Okanagan Innovation Centre, located at 460 Doyle Ave. in downtown Kelowna.

Henrique Reginato will lead the camp, and he brings with him a long list of film credits: Minority Report, Gotham, Timeless, Dark Matter and Foxcatcher. He will instruct camp participants on Nuke, the industry’s standard software, and other insights into how VFX is created.

The camp will give beginner to intermediate graphic artists and film students a chance to improve their portfolios, as the students will complete a “fully executed shot using industry techniques in a suite of different graphics and video tools,” according to an OC press release.

The cost of the weeklong camp is $500 plus GST, although there is a $50 discount for School District 23 high school students, as well as Okanagan College and UBCO students and faculty. Bardel, Yeti Farm and Hyper Hippo staff members are also eligible for the discount.
