Melies is coming to Vancouver and partners with MDS

I’m gonna take the time to post a press release here… It’s from the school I teach in, Melies, and since it’s a huge step for the company I thought I should post it here.

Melies – Escola de Cinema, 3D e Animação, Brazil’s leading 3d animation school just announced their new venture for the upcoming year: Melies Vancouver. With the support from the canadian government, Melies will bring their exclusive methodology and various courses to the Northern Hemisphere. At first, the school will be offering online courses covering animation, modeling, lighting & rendering, ZBrush, VFX and architectural visualization, always counting with renowned industry professionals.

Along with that announcement, a partnership with New Zealand’s Media Design School has also been made official. Students now can now enroll on exchange programs between the two schools with full support, including the possibility of a working visa for those willing to study and work abroad.
More details will be unveiled shortly as Melies is going to release more info on both announcements.

A hotsite has been launched today in portuguese only, but an english version is schedule to launch in the following days. You can check it out here (, as well as check the students’ works here ( under ALUNOS > GALERIAS).

  1. Hello,
    I have just recently read about Melies in Vancouver. This is something that highly interests me as a former architect in Vancouver currently working as a Visual Effects Supervisor at TV Record in Rio da Janeiro. I have studied at the Vancouver Film School where I got my degree in computer animation in 1994. I have also worked for Discreet Logic ( Montreal based software company) training Smoke and Flame teams throughout Latin America. I’d appreciate any information or contacts regarding Melies’ venture in Vancouver.
    Yours trully,
    Ron Z. Williams
