Social Media and Web Manager – Lost Boys School of VFX

Introducing Lost Boys School of VFX!

What’s in a name?

Lost Boys originates from the Peter Pan stories created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie, later to be pushed into popular culture as an animated feature film by Walt Disney. Reflecting the youthful culture of visual effects production where fantastical experiences and stories are created, Lost Boys became a place where artist vision and playful creative innovation became a daily occurrence. Today, it is a point of great pride to call oneself a Lost Boy and to carry on our 25+ years of creative legacy.
