The Rookies 2023 : ArtFX leads the ranking
The Yard’s strategic partner, ArtFX, takes once again the lead of the 2023 school benchmark established by The Rookies.
The Rookies, the specialized media that recognizes digital arts schools worldwide, has recently revealed its annual benchmark. Out of over 500 institutions, ArtFX has been ranked #1 in the category VISUAL EFFECTS -PRODUCTION EXCELLENCE and #2 in the category VISUAL EFFECTS – CREATIVE SCHOOLS.
The Yard’s team extends heartfelt congratulations to ArtFX’s team and students for these remarkable achievements, further affirming their international standing and the outstanding quality of their training program.
At The Yard, we take great pride in our partnership with a prestigious institution like ArtFX, playing a significant role in enhancing France’s VFX industry reputation through the education of future talent. Our teams were delighted to contribute to the inauguration of their new campus in Lille last month. Additionally, it was a privilege to join forces with them and meet with France’s Minister of Culture, Rima Abdul Malak, last week to discuss the growth of the film industry in the Occitanie region.
Let’s revisit the excitement of ArtFX’s Lille campus opening last month and catch a glimpse of the festivities, including some images of the masterclass hosted by The Yard’s CEO, Laurens Ehrmann, and Head of VFX, Harry Bardak:
