Looking for a top visual effect studio in Boston?

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 Boston. Browse descriptions, feedback, and awards to find which can best suit your company’s needs. If you need more support, tell us about your project, and we'll match you with recommended companies.
