Just after ArtFX, I joined Ubisoft Montpellier where I am Junior FX Artist. I create VFX for Gameplay and Environments. In 2018, I worked on the VFX and cinematics for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. My training at ArtFX gave me in-depth knowledge in all areas of video games, ease of adaptation on software and a lot of autonomy! At ArtFX we are well prepared for work within team on major projects. The extensive professional network that ArtFX has is a huge advantage for Junior Artists looking for their first position.
