Hilarious pirates, crazy ducks, and other funny figures from Montpellier’s animation schools such as Esma and ArtFX are hits at the top festivals in France and abroad. They are the result of cutting-edge training programs.
Top quality training programs... and student excellence!Students from Montpellier schools also had another opportunity to shine. They created many of the animations projected on buildings during Montpellier’s City in Lights festival on November 27-29, 2019. ArtFX, ESMA, Objectif 3D, e-artsup, Acfa Multimédia, Brassart, Studio M, and Ensam all participated in the event.
Anthony Voisin is in charge of the teaching curriculum for animation professions at ESMA, and is quite proud of the success achieved by An Eye for an Eye and other creations such as For a Fistful of Caramel.
The school’s efforts have been crowned by nominations at national and international festivals. These nominations emphasize training quality and students’ excellent level, leading to many professional opportunities. Montpellier’s animation schools ESMA and ArtFX both have a 100% job placement rate!
He says: “Of course, there is some luck involved in our students’ success, but it is also the fruit of years of work teaching them the basics, bringing them up to speed in a particular specialty, and then supporting them with artistic and technical aspects for group projects. We work with the same students from their first to fourth years, which enables us to really understand their strengths and weaknesses and put together very complementary teams.”
