As a NextGen student you will be taught by both current and previous industry practitioners, across both film and games, who embed that industry experience into your lessons. Employers crave softer skills and at Nescot our students excel in developing skills such as teamwork, communication and problem solving. We specialise in allowing you to collaborate with likeminded creative individuals to develop the relevant skills vital to the Games, Animation and Visual Effects (VFX) industries.

Graham Chalk is the course leader. He has more than 12 years experience of working in art departments across the film, TV and games industries. He holds a Masters Degree in Creative Digital Media and has been teaching at Nescot since 2008.
