Looking for a top visual effect studio in Melbourne?

If you've ever watched a Jurassic Park movie and wondered at how real the dinosaurs appeared or cringed as a dragon flew and breathed fire in Game of Thrones, then you've experience stellar visual effects (VFX). This computer-generated imagery (CGI) takes a scene in a video and adjusts the image to create an alternate reality. It's how actors can stand in front of a blank, green screen to record but the audience sees them in a spectacular location.

If your next video project requires VFX and you need more than out-of-the box animation and compositing software, find a visual effects studio on The Manifest.

To assist you in your search for a partner, we’ve compiled this list of the top visual effect companies in Melbourne. Browse descriptions, feedback, and awards to find which can best suit your company’s needs.
