LET'S GET YOU CERTIFIED

Why is certification important if your portfolio is your calling card? Because certification gives you the confidence to approach clients as a master of your skillset.

While clients always appreciate certification, it’s first and foremost for your confidence and piece of mind.

We partnered with companies who are the industry standard in CGI, Maxon and Cinema 4D, to issue certification for the software because we believe that certification is important for YOU, first.

If you want to join a team or agency that is looking for artists, that certification becomes a requirement. CGI is highly technical, and Certifications will allow you to easily convey your mastery, and help tell your CGI story.

Whether you’re creating for photography clients or a production company, workflow is crucial. This process will make your workflow efficient, and establish a baseline of industry standards so that you can easily join a creative team, or create incredible imagery for your clients.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

This six week course online that begins January 26th. Students will begin together, completing tasks and assignments individually, while collaborating, networking, and helping each other in our new online synchronous certification platform and private community server for students to communicate. By the end of the course students will have the knowledge to complete the first certification test issued by PRO EDU and Maxon.

CGI IS REALLY IMPORTANT

If you are a creative artist, photographer, art director, retoucher, or video editor, then listen up. Companies, industries, and everyone in between are looking for ways to achieve their vision within their budget.

CGI offers the ability to meet their needs, often at a lower cost than a full photography production requires. Car advertisements are almost all CGI now. Beverage photography? CGI. The entire IKEA catalogue is 3D. Some form of CGI has likely been used in most advertising you can think of.

It doesn't matter if you want to use a LOT of CGI in your photography, or a little. It's important that creatives know how to use this tool so they don’t get left behind by a fast moving, price conscious industry.

A NEW WORKFLOW

In many of our Composite tutorials, we teach that you ALWAYS shoot your backplate first, and then match your subject and lighting to your backplate. Well...no more. We’ve built a new workflow and custom 3D studios where you can manipulate the backplate and set your lighting to match your subject in POST. Yup, you read that right. You can now build a studio or other environment around your subjects. Shoot in your living room, and give your client a photo of themselves in a Vanity Fair style studio.

Why have just one studio when you can have several?

We've even built a library of props you can use in our new 3D Asset Library for photographers.

A NEW BUSINESS FOR YOU

Think of CGI as something you are ADDING to your services. It may not replace what you do (yet), but can add new tools and new products that you can now offer your clients. In the age where public gatherings and creative shoots is hard, this is the solution.

WHY A 6 WEEK COURSE?

Our goal is to advance your skills.

In order to qualify for access to Cinema 4D software, you HAVE to be enrolled as a student in the six week course at PRO EDU. Otherwise the software is $720 a year. Our 6 week course gives you access for up to 12 months to Cinema 4D license, with no extra cost to you while you are becoming proficient in the course.

We want you to succeed in adding this skillset to your arsenal. There is MAJOR demand for CGI artists, and photographers who master this skill will be at the forefront of image making. 6 weeks will help you jump start your path into 3D and give you the skill you need to get certified within the first 12 months.

This course will not only help prepare you for the art form, but also connect you with the new wave of artists who will control the industry for years to come.

There are no mandatory times that you have to meet during the 6 weeks, and everything is watchable at your own pace, and on your own schedule. You don't even HAVE to take a certification test, we are simply helping give you the tools you need.
