Like with every other good adventure, our first steps were driven by a desire for more opportunities and an unrelenting dedication to constant improvement.

Manifesto

Launched in 2012 as an extension of Crater Studio, we envisioned our school as a central landmark of the domestic VFX and CG industry as well as its gatekeeper: a place where upcoming and established professionals meet to learn, flourish and grow together while powering the growth of the community as a whole. 

We have been dedicated to this journey ever since. On it, we strive for courage, openness, and excellence. We value honesty and quality, and never compromise on practicability and applicability. We try to lead instead of waiting and act instead of complaining. We put our faith in the incredible forces of collaboration, the elusive dream of synergistic fireworks, the far-reaching fruits of empowerment, and the deep bonds created by a strong community spirit.

We do our work. And we help you be the best at yours.

Mission

We are an educational center, talent incubator and career partner providing future and existing VFX, Gaming and CG professionals the necessary knowledge and support to achieve their goals and advance their careers. With practicing professionals and masters at their craft as course designers and instructors, we strive to give our students practical, applicable knowledge while helping them build connections within the industry and constantly working on new and better ways to play our part on their path to excellence.

Our Network

Success is about what you know – but also, who you know!

As a student of Crater Training Center, you gain access not only to an up-to-date, actionable education but also to a vast network of partners, local and overseas, to help support your ongoing professional growth in the CG industries. With schools and educational institutions on the one hand, studios and companies on the other, and software companies in between, we are dedicated to forging strong community bonds and engaging all industry stakeholders in order to stimulate the mutual exchange of knowledge and experience. Guided by the philosophy of continuous learning from recruiting practicing professionals as course instructors to organizing networking and industry Events, we are always looking for new and better ways to blur the line between education and profession, theory and practice, classroom and production environment.

CGA BELGRADE

Honoring the legacy of fearless pioneers whose unrelenting drive and fierce commitment to excellence have helped transform computer graphics into one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide, CGA Belgrade is an international gathering organized by Crater Training Center, VFXSerbia portal and Serbian Film Association that brings together artists, leaders, innovators and game-changers to foster connections, build global networks and unpack latest trends and developments in the world of VFX, gaming, VR/AR, design and digital arts.

How do we do this?

We round up some of the world’s best-known professionals. We dig deep for the latest developments, fascinating projects, and brilliant insights – and then invite some of the industry’s brightest minds to tell us their thoughts on it. We organize training opportunities and bring in recruiters. We shake hands with industry reps, and software and hardware distributors that bring the technology for a new era of visual storytelling. From Hollywood’s finest to indie superstars, from local heroes to global sharks, with masterclasses, insider tips, life lessons and everything in between, CGA Belgrade is the pinnacle of our relentless devotion to success through collaboration and networking.
