Where are the Major VFX Houses Located?

Caleb Ward

Learn the exact location of all the major VFX houses in the world using the VFX World Map.

It is definitely an understatement to say that the domestic VFX industry is hurting right now. Many studios have shuttered in recent years and there’s been a major outcry from US based VFX artists that their jobs are getting sent overseas, due to foreign subsidies and cheaper labor costs.

In the past, US based VFX houses were mostly centralized in NYC and LA, but in recent years there has been a wider geographic spread of these types of businesses. For aspiring VFX artists and those looking for work, the choice on where to live has become more complicated.
