I’m proud to be a member of the Lost Boys Alumni. I was able to learn more and faster with Mark Bénard’s project based training than all the years I spent trying to learn by myself. I found this method of learning very fluid, beginning with simple but complete projects that eventually turned more challenging which allowed me to explore different tools and techniques. My classmates and I had a great time during our visits to Vancouver’s CG related companies as well as the multiple social activities. I highly recommend Lost Boys as a VFX training school.

Lost Boys | School of Visual Effects is a unique experience in every way.
Students find themselves in a culturally rich and diverse group of people in one of the most naturally beautiful places in the world, Vancouver BC, Canada. We differ from traditional educational institutions with our hands-on, project based curriculum and studio-like classroom environment, with lots of "in the field" excursions. The small class size nurtures a strong learning relationship between students and mentor, and often results in a close knit group of friends who develop team work skills while recognizing and supporting each others strengths. This is the experience that sets Lost Boys | School of Visual Effects apart, and prepares our graduates to succeed in VFX careers.
Outside of the classroom, students often spend time together socially, getting together for movie screenings, sports or potluck dinners.
We invite you to explore all we have to offer, view our Photo Galleries, and visit our Alumni section to learn more about past students.
