This summer, challenge yourself creatively, and discover new career paths at VFS.


This summer, we invite creative students to join us for five-day intensive workshops in Film Production, 3D Animation, Game Design, Acting, Writing, and Makeup Design.

You’ll enhance your technical & creative skillset, craft a powerful portfolio, and try something new in a true studio experience. Our workshops are taught by experienced professionals who are actively working in and shaping the creative media arts industries.

This year, our Summer Intensives will be held in-person (with one exception), allowing you to get the most out of our workshops through face-to-face instruction and feedback on your work.



Price varies per workshop – see specific workshops below for prices.
