Many of their students have found a career right out of school. For evidence of this we only need to look at the latest figures: 98% hiring rate, 510 people working at the highest level (Star Wars, X-Men, DeadPool, Avengers, Inception etc …) not to mention the international awards obtained (Oscars included).
Our apprentices have the honor of working on the final films of ArtFx 5th-year VFX students, as well as those in the “gaming” section. These projects are destined to be screened around the world and presented to an audience of industry professionals in June each year.
