PIXL VISN has been successfully training 3D Visual Effects Artists in Cologne, Germany since 2012. The professional field spreads across many multimedia branches such as movies, TV series, gaming and advertising. The concept of the intense, 15-month full time training for visual effects (VFX) and 3D animation– one of its kind in Germany, is based on an established North American training model in which the instructors themselves are working in important positions within the entertainment industry, at studios such as Disney, Pixar, EA-Sports etc. This depth of experience provides students with information and knowledge earned through from real-life practice. PIXL VISN was ranked amongst the ten best VFX schools in the world in 2018 by the international industry-platform "The Rookies." In 2019 we were once again in the top ten VFX schools and we were awarded the 3rd best animation school worldwide and number one in Europe.
