Mo-Sys Releases New Line-Up Of Courses

News Image
Mo-Sys Engineering has released a new line-up of guided Virtual Production training courses. This improved extensive programme has been carefully developed and will be delivered by Mo-Sys' Academy at its London HQ through summer 2022.

With limited availability, demand is expected to be exceptionally high from broadcast and film industry professionals wishing to gain valuable Virtual Production experience, university lecturers upskilling and students alike for what is set to be the most comprehensive practical Virtual Production training on the planet.

Multiple courses for all levels have been released starting with a 3-day introduction to Virtual Production to an intensive full Virtual Production foundation course over 10-days. Delivered by skilled on-set technicians, summer course dates start from 15th June and run until 15th August 2022. Mo-Sys' Academy training incorporates the entire Virtual Production spectrum from green screen, augmented reality (AR), computer generated imagery (CGI), motion capture, XR and LED. Learning takes place in a supportive and friendly environment with small group creative exercises throughout.

Course attendees will gain significant access to the latest Virtual Production tools and techniques, including working with the world's leading camera tracking system, Mo-Sys StarTracker, understanding lighting requirements for green screen and LED production and discovering how to run virtual productions using Unreal Engine as part of a workflow leveraging LED volumes for in-camera visual effects (ICVFX).

Demand for Virtual Production has exploded in recent years and with that, the industry requirement for experienced VP talent has grown in equal measure. Mo-Sys’ Academy has the unrivalled experience and knowledge to guide students to the forefront of the broadcast and film industry.

"There has been a boom in Virtual Production, and the greatest challenge facing the industry is finding people who understand LED volumes, on-set pre-visualization and XR shooting. These are relatively new techniques and there is a shortage of trained technicians who understand the unique challenges that come with this new and exciting way of creating content," commented Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys. "Mo-Sys Academy was created to address the skills bottleneck the industry is facing, and to transfer the knowledge Mo-Sys has gained over the last 25 years."

Mo-Sys is also working with universities, such as the University of Sunderland who recently announced a major £1.4m technology refresh. Mo-Sys partner, CJP Broadcast Services, has installed state-of-the-art Virtual Production technology, making Sunderland a powerhouse with standout media courses which will benefit students for years to come. In support of this upgrade to the latest LED volume production technology and tools, Mo-Sys Academy provided Virtual Production training for university staff.
