word of alumni

In my opinion, ESMA remains one of the reference schools for the CG Animation training. The school’s address book allows students to find their happiness in the panel of studios present during the final jury. It is a school that I regularly recommend.

word of alumni

The training brought me rigour in the work and a beginning of introduction to the rhythm of life of a real production. Being a little “touchy” in CG animation thanks to ESMA has been a big plus in my professional progress, especially for my department which requires a lot of knowledge in many fields.
