A letter from

Urban Bradesko

Big Smoke, Explosion Guy, VFX Madman & Founder of DOUBLEJUMP.
We've been there, applying to studios and receiving no response, too intimidated to seek help or reach out to the renowned VFX artist we admire, all while dreaming of the day when we can leave our mark on our dream project. Keep aspiring, because every challenge is a stepping stone towards achieving your dreams!

I always wanted to work for Blizzard, and when i had that chance to work on a cinematic and seeing it premiered at BlizzCon, that was one of my proudest moments in my life. Still brings a tear to my eye.

When I finally got the chance to lead and supervise the layout and cinematography for a cinematic, it was a dream come true.

Seeing it premiered at BlizzCon? That was one of the proudest and most exhilarating moments of my life.I also won the best short film on Blizzcon that year. so that was also nice.

So trust me, i know what you guys want.
And that is why you are here.

can you be
in one year?

"Learning VFX can be a daunting task, especially when you’re not sure what sources and practices you can rely on and follow. Urban is a master of his craft and delivers high-end, quality content that you can trust to keep you on track in your professional development. I have greatly benefitted and grown as an artist from his invaluable industry knowledge, that often times can’t be found anywhere else. If you want to learn how to produce industry quality effects at the highest level you won’t want to miss anything from of Urban Bradesko."
