V-Ray is a fantastic renderer for us here at Media Design School due to its polished implementation and feature rich design. This provides the students with the best experience of contemporary rendering technologies and gives them the control to produce the best possible image in any situation.

Student success stories

Citipati

Andreas Feix and Francesco Faranna’s short film Citipati is the latest student short from the Filmakademie to be bestowed with the award. It’s not hard to see why it caught the judges’ attention: it ambitiously tells the tale of the dying moments of an ostrich-sized dinosaur as meteors destroy the world around it.

Roommate Wanted

Everyone can relate to the story of the roommate from hell. They’re usually either too messy, or too tidy, and the fact that you have to spend most of your quality time with this person only makes matters worse. But what if your co-habitee is actually a zombie?
