Our Story

El Ranchito was founded in 2004 by a group of renowned visual effects professionals, led by Félix Bergés, with a clear objective: to seek excellence in our work. From this vision, great challenges and opportunities have arisen, which have made us become an international reference studio.

Our staff, formed by more than 200 recognized professionals in the industry, offers solutions to our clients in a close, flexible and creative way, from our facilities in Madrid and Barcelona to any part of the world.

El Ranchito is a project that was born with the dream of creating a space where experience, knowledge and teamwork were a fundamental part of its activity. Each project is a challenge and an opportunity to show our enormous capacity to make the impossible possible.

As a result of our track record we are now part of the international visual effects group Pitch Black Company, which also includes FuseFX, FOLKS and Rising Sun Pictures. Together we are a workforce of over 1,400 artists around the world, spread across thirteen locations in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, Saguenay, Adelaide, Brisbane, Bogota, Madrid, Barcelona and Mumbai.
