7 best VFX courses in Italy


Since  Georges Méliès, cinematography realized that it could have transformed into images what it had always fantasized or writes.

From Star Wars Motion Control (1977); for the fully computerized 3D world of Tron (1982); for morphing used in Willow (1988) and Terminator 2 (1992); for Jurassic Park (1993) that introduced real animals into computer graphics, with realistic movements and credible muscle and skin animations; until reaching the advanced compositing techniques of Forrest Gump (1994); the use of Bullet-Time in The Matrix (1999); to the creation of Massive Software for The Lord of the Rings (2001); to the atmospheric effects generated by Natural Shader for The day after tomorrow (2004); to the creation of Solidgrams in Ghost in the Shell (2017).

In the decades, visual effects creation techniques (VFX), or those processes through which images are created, modified outside the context of the so-called live action shootings, have refined to the point that what exists or does not exist can also be reproduced.

At present, the VFX market and post-production services in general are at a time of remarkable expansion.

If you think that over the last decade, there has been an increase in visual effects in films that traditionally did not make much use of them.

Although, to a lesser degree than in other European countries, even in Italy, in recent decades, demand for post-production and VFX services by investors has increased significantly.

This prospective opening has made it clear that there is a need to conceive good courses for training specialists in the industry.

Below we have listed those that we believe are some of the best VFX courses offered by the Italian school.
