See VFX student Peter's final major project

Peter Phillips studies BA (Hons) Visual Effects and Motion Graphics. His final year film, Out of Time, is inspired by his love of Sc-fi films.

“I wanted to create a world that was grounded and was believable for the viewer. I've been a big fan of Blade Runner and Dredd for a long time, and I themed my project around those films, creating a believable world in the not so distant future.

We were given 12 weeks to work on the project, from pre-production to completion. There were few challenges with this project, many due to the technicalities of filming. During post-production some shots proved more problematic than first thought. The matte paintings, for the opening and end shots, were a challenge to create. I had to make strong and visual compelling images, that felt grounded in the world.

I'm really proud of the work I produced. I wanted to create a strong final piece after my 3 years of study that I would be proud to have on my showreel.

After graduation I hope to work in TV as a compositor. I've been building my skills within this area, all through my studies and developed a stronger compositional eye for my Visual Effects shot. I hope to work within TV, as I am a huge fan of televisions shows and their faster turn arounds for projects. The quality of TV productions these days rival films and I really love to work on them.”
