We help freelance 3D artists attract more premium clients

Get to production-ready results faster

Hey, I’m Jesse and I started RedefineFX in 2018 simply because I couldn’t find the kind of VFX training I was looking for – something concise that is not 100 hours long but still shows you the entire process and at end of each lesson, you walk away with a finished result that you can immediately use to enhance your portfolio and attract more clients (rather than just an unfinished viewport preview of the effect).

My promise to you about RedefineFX courses:

  • they follow the same style of teaching you’re used to from my tutorials
  • they are as short as I can possibly make them without skipping anything important
  • they don’t require you to wait to get all the lessons
  • they are dense & packed with value, tips, tricks, lessons learned, mistakes to avoid and more
  • They always come with all the valuable project files
  • I always remind myself that beginners might be watching before I start recording

What Students Say

“Thanks for all your tutorials. They are basically Video Copilot for 3D simulations. Very helpful!”

Ben Jones, RedefineFX Enrolled Student

“Last year I started my 3D career and came across RedefineFX’s courses and immediately fell in love. First I enrolled in the Beginner Liquid course and immediately knew I made the right choice. Easy to understand and easy to follow.”

Kariakos Kaitezidis, RedefineFX Enrolled Student (in All Courses)

“I’m actually creating a couple of VFX shots for a paid job that’s really exciting. It’s been awesome learning from your course”

Matthew Scott, RedefineFX Enrolled Student

I could have dug for years reading through documentation and searching all over for information but Jesse made it incredibly easy for me to follow along and learn each aspect of the software
