Kevin Leroy

VFX Artist - Riot Games

I truly wish this website existed when I first started VFX. It's chock-full of industry-defining resources and tutorials covering a vast diversity of subjects. And maybe even more importantly: it covers different engines and softwares. From concepting to in-engine implementations, these courses have it all, and it is all of the highest quality.

Tyson Murphy

Art Director - Riot Games

Jason is one of the only people I've met throughout my entire career that has world class artistic talent in the craft of VFX, and also has the kindness, wisdom, and dedication of a great teacher.  Jason is an incredible value to any of the world's top studios, and I've personally seen him change the lives of aspiring artists and students everywhere.  He is passionate about his educational work, and it is truly the best I've seen.  Anyone who wishes they were a VFX artist needs to get in touch with Jason and VFX Apprentice.

I've had first hand experience learning from, and being inspired by, Jason Keyser.  He's an exceptional artist, a leader in the Real Time VFX industry, and a phenomenal teacher who deeply, deeply cares about sharing the elusive techniques behind best in class VFX and helping people realize their creative dreams. Jason is the real deal - I learn from him every chance I get.
