School of Motion Picture Arts

CapU’s School of Motion Picture Arts is dedicated to inspiring and training a new generation of Canadian talent in the film, TV, animation, gaming and motion picture industries. With enviable studios and state-of-the-art equipment for shooting, digital production, costuming, editing and screening you’ll be empowered to produce original, high quality work for a worldwide audience.

Why study motion picture arts at CapU? 

Located at the Bosa Centre for Film and Animation – CapU’s hub for entertainment arts – we offer a range of programs and courses for people looking for careers in filmmaking, documentary, lighting/grip work, costuming, animation (2D and 3D), visual effects (VFX), games and virtual reality. The Centre also offers one of the only Indigenous filmmaking programs in North America.

Our facilities include virtual reality and motion capture-equipped studios, Cintiq drawing tablets, high-speed render farms, professional filmmaking equipment and 3D printers. It’s a great opportunity to learn the skills required to enter the creative industries.

Vancouver, BC is a world-leading centre for film, VFX, animation, games and virtual reality, with more than 250 production studios creating entertainment properties for film, TV, console, mobile and streaming services.

With more job openings in Vancouver than talent to fill them, there are unparalleled opportunities for skilled people.

We have hired many of their graduates and are strong supporters.
