'Wait, just what is that school ?
École Georges Melies : Fine Arts, Animation & Video Games
Founded in 1999 by its Director Franck PETITTA, Georges Méliès' school has one goal : create true « Image craftsmen » thanks to a curriculum encompassing the arts fundamentals dispensed by established profesionals.
Every year, « Animated Images craftmen » are trained to the arts of animation cinema and digital visual effects. In recent year, a new « Video Game craftmen » curiculum has been opened to anticipate growing needs in the industry.
First localized in the George Melies castle in Orly, where this father of cinema and special effects spent his last years, it then moved in 2015 not so far from there, in a newly constructed building of nearly 3000m², €6M financed by Europe, Ile-de-France, Val de Marne, and the city of Orly.
It's in this gorgeous setting that this young and dynamic school has opened its doors to us again. Invested from the very beggining in the project with an energy and enthusiasm way beyond what we could have ever asked for. It is with the upmost pleasure and with a lot of humility that we invite our readers to check out their website www.ecolegeorgesmelies.fr [french only] See you guys there !
