SCOTLAND’S ONLY STUDIO DEDICATED TO SPECIAL FX SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
Gibbet FX runs an exciting programme of short courses teaching a wide variety of practical special effects techniques.Our aim is to provide affordable,vocational training for those keen to develop their skills in the areas of Special Effects and Prop building.Courses run throughout the year in our Edinburgh based studio at Arts Complex/Edinburgh Palette,St Margaret’s House, 151 London Road,Edinburgh.
We offer a range of courses from one day intros,weekend skills-development blocks & five/six day workshops to suit your individual requirements and budget.
Worried that you don’t have the skills it takes to do a course? Don’t! Many of our students had limited to no experience before they attended,yet with our guidance were able to create some truly astounding work as our showreel below shows! We are also delighted that several of our students have also gone on to receive placed traineeships in the UK Film Industry after first attending Gibbet FX courses,with little or no prior experience! Additionally,FUNDING may be available to help cover the cost of training on courses run at Gibbet FX.Either contact us directly or you can follow the FUNDING links at the bottom of this page for more details.
