We recently had the pleasure of hosting Chris Harvey, VFX Supervisor of Oats Studios! After a facility tour from our founders, all the students joined Chris in our theater to hear his interesting career story. (Frantic Films, Prime Focus, Image Engine, and ILM..) Chris also took some time to talk about his recent adventures with Oats Studios, founded by Director, Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, Chappie…) In the past couple years Oats Studios has produced hugely popular short films featuring ground breaking visual effects. Huge thanks to Chris for sharing his time with Lost Boys and we wish you all the best in your future ventures. For more information on Oats Studios please visit their website at oatsstudios.com!
“A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Lost Boys School of VFX. I have known the two that run it for years but strangely never had the chance to stop in. I have to say I was very impressed with what I saw. Unlike other VFX schools out there I think they are doing something different, and something needed. They aren’t the school you go to if you want to find yourself, see if maybe you might be interested in VFX, no they are the school you go to if you ARE interested in VFX. At Lost Boys you’re going to get specialized training that will get you the knowledge you need to get a job. They work directly with local facilities and make sure their students are getting the education that the facilities are looking for. Had an awesome time there talking to the students and suffice to say was very impressed with what they are doing!” – Chris Harvey, VFX Supervisor
