Visual Effects Jobs in Miami

Miami's visual effects industry is much smaller than that of New York or Los Angeles, but visual effects jobs in the region continue to grow. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, from 2010-2016, the number of visual effects artists living in Miami doubled in size. This growth was fueled by the increasing demand for visual effects and animation on advertising and television content.

Unlike other entertainment jobs, which often require entry-level candidates to start out as assistants, the visual effects industry employs entry-level artists in all areas of production, from character modeling to animation to compositing. The key to landing a job in this field is having a mastery of the technology and software used in visual effects, and to have an outstanding portfolio reel to show employers. You have the option to enter the industry as a specialist or generalist. It takes longer to learn all the skills required to be a visual effects generalist, but once those skills are learned, the generalist can migrate to whichever type of visual effects job is in highest demand at the time.

The top ranked schools in Miami with programs and degrees in visual effects are Florida State University ($49,982 per year, out-of-state), Miami Dade College ($34,497 per year, out-of-state), and University of Miami ($44,400 per year, out-of-state), according to rankings published by the Hollywood Reporter and Hack College in 2016.
