Refine your design chops pronto with this 5-day intensive from AFTRS

A good designer is one who never stops learning – but finding the time to do so can be tough if you’re balancing multiple jobs. A new course from the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) has a solution though; a five-day intensive helping designers take their work to the next level.

Concept to Creation runs at the end of the month. If you’re a working designer looking to bolster yours skillset or give your concepts and pitches an edge over the competition, this is for you.

Concept to Creation: this five-day design intensive from one of Australia’s leading creative colleges could have your name on it.

As the title of the course would suggest, Concept to Creation is based around the skills every designer needs in order to communicate their ideas to clients. This includes storyboarding, tips on creating concept art, and more. Some experience in the field would be beneficial, but is not essential for the course.

Concept to Creation is taught by Michael Phillips, an architect and production designer who has worked within the film industry since the ’80s. He is an experienced tutor both to and elsewhere, having taught in the design and production fields concurrently to his film career.

Some of the talents you would walk out of the course with include:

  • Learn to communicate mood, tone and character through pre-visualisation and concept art exercises
  • Gain skills in storyboarding and perspective rendering to help tell your story
  • Get hands on-practice creating real and virtual 3D models for sets, events and props

Concept to Creation runs from January 28th through to February 1st and is based in the AFTRS campus in Moore Park, Sydney. To find out more, click here.
