"A great guide for budding filmmakers with a lot of imagination, but not a lot of money." -Nathyn Brendan Masters, TimeCode Mechanics 


The ultimate training course for the independent or aspiring filmmaker!  Indie Rebel: VFX will help you tell the story that you want to tell by learning to utilize free or low cost software to add effects to your films.  You'll learn to composite like the pros with node based compositing!  Learn matte painting, green screen, shooting guns, driving fast and more!

We'll cover how to set up your software to get the best out of it, explain what nodes are and why they're better than layers, how to work with log footage in a node based environment, and then show you various common effects that independent filmmakers should be able to do - both visible and invisible!

We'll also show you some quick tips on how we color graded the short film, and we've also included a bonus course on poster design!
