Unreal Connector CG Spectrum Launches Virtual Production Training for Studios and Production Professionals


PRESS RELEASE: April 25, 2022 – Film and game industry trainer CG Spectrum has launched the 12-week Unreal Connectors: Virtual Production Program to equip studios and artists with the latest virtual production techniques using Unreal Engine.

Unreal Connectors is the first micro-credentialing program dedicated to teaching artists virtual production. Created in partnership with Epic Games, the 12-week intensive blended learning experience is designed for established media professionals, filmmakers, animators, archviz and VFX artists, as well as studios wishing to increase their real-time production services and empower their teams to help lead this new era of storytelling. 

Held entirely online and available worldwide, CG Spectrum’s Unreal Connectors: Virtual Production Program includes almost 100 hours of video content alongside project-based work. With small cohort sizes (4 people max) and mentorship from CG Spectrum's real-time artists, participants will learn Unreal Engine fundamentals, model ingestion, animation, mocap integration, lookdev, and lighting setups. On graduation participants will be confident in cinematic storytelling and creating high-quality short films using Unreal Engine. 

“As the need for real-time content continues to grow, studios and professionals worldwide are quickly realizing the need of Virtual Production and Unreal Engine as a valuable addition to their skillset. With Unreal Connectors, we're excited to be able to offer a condensed, immersive program for professionals looking to upskill and set themselves apart, and for studios looking to fulfil their workforce needs,” says Jeremy Chinn, CG Spectrum’s Chief Operations Officer.

The program’s flexible scheduling caters to studio needs and production professionals balancing work and professional development. It includes an intensive online curriculum designed by Epic Games, personalized support through live weekly sessions, industry guest speakers, and a supportive community.
