The cultural test for VFX projects
VFX projects have to pass the « VFX/animation cultural test » made of three distinctive parts, that rewards mainly the involvement in the first part of characters that are whether of European origins or of undetermined origin (monsters, non-humanoids or animals meet this requirement).
In the second part, it requires involvement of French and European talents.
The third part looks at the involvement of French companies in the project. The test is therefore easy to pass for any VFX project that is substantially made in France. Marvel’s « Thor », Wong Kar-wai’s « The Grandmaster », David Lynch’s new « Twin Peaks » series or Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming « Blade Runner 2049 » all qualified to the TRIP incentive. The scope of interpretation is wide and it opens the door to a lot of projects.
