SA VFX Editors Workshop 2022

NETFLIX & TEMPO, through its associate SAGE, are joining forces to offer the first VFX editor course of its kind in South Africa. This course is aimed at those who want to make a career as a VFX editor.


A lifetime dreaming of your story. Years researching, raising funds. Months pouring over text and proposals, rejections and victories. Eventually production starts and stops. Subjects’ lives change and alter the narrative possibilities. That’s ok though, it’s part of the thrill. Budgets get higher, funding runs lower; but you manage, somehow. Finally, you feel you’re ready for the edit, you think you’re ready. Then the real problems begin.

SAGE is a non-profit company #2007/006516/08
