At Illumination MacGuff there is around 90 people from the school ESMA, from all the France. For this students, the integration is easy : between their short film of end of study and the exercices along their learning. They can work inside the team and a pipeline of animation. We watch this school very close because there is a good formation and talented students.

PROFESSIONAL QUOTE

What I like it’s an atmosphere of camaraderie that there is, and that feels the effects in movies a lot. To Illumination MacGuff, we try to recreate a cocoon, in order to people feel good. And when we see them all together, having made movies like that, it is magnificent. You want to take a group to make a movie.
