The VFX Lab has been in charge of the digital effects of Malasaña 32, the second film of the graduate and professor of the school Albert Pintó, produced by Atresmedia Cine and Bambú Producciones. The film was released on Friday, January 17 and has become the best release of a Spanish horror film in recent years, ranking at the top of the box office in the first weekend.
This is the first work of ESCAC’s VFX Lab, the technical improvement program that the school offers to VFX graduates, guaranteeing their participation in professional industry productions, such as feature films, short films and series produced by ESCAC STUDIO and ESCAC FILMS, as well as professional accompaniment and external collaborations in ESCAC community projects.
Three-time Goya Award winner Lluís Castells is the Lab’s coordinator, Lio Estivill is the supervisor and Albert Aynés is the producer, all graduates.
ESCAC’s LABS offers a new training model for creation and production with two objectives: to promote talent and its incorporation into the audiovisual sector and to foster excellence in the academic field, promoting technical training, individual talent and teamwork.
This action plan and its track record working with young talents consolidate ESCAC as one of the main R+D+I factories in audiovisual productions in Spain.
