Nos réseaux pédagogiques et partenaires
IPAX - Sony Pictures Imageworks
Partner
IPAX - Sony Pictures Imageworks
"
In 2006, ESMA  was granted  the IPAX label (Imageworks Professional Academic Excellence) awarded by the Sony Pictures Imageworks studio. Since that date, the school has been sending some students and faculty members every year to follow a training at Sony and discover that giant of animation.
It is an opportunity for them to develop professional connections on whom they can count when looking for future employment.
ESMA faculty also benefit from this label as some of our teachers have had the opportunity to spend a few weeks at Sony, allowing them to remain at the top of the expectations of major studios in terms of requirement and technology.
