Our visual-effects studio specializes in the creation of photoreal 3D elements such as environments, set extensions, matte paintings, vehicles and objects of all kinds. We also specialize in 3D tracking and crowd, element and particle simulation. Our studio is comprised of artists, technicians and managers who work together to bring our clients’ visions to life. From script to screen, we offer continuous support to producers and directors, helping them choose the most effective solutions, from on-set techniques to digital magic.
We work as the primary VFX studio for a variety of projects, collaborating regularly with other studios who may provide a complement to our services or boost our capacity for larger productions. On set, we work with production teams to develop a plan of action that will optimize the end result.
Over the years, our research-and-development team has created efficient production-pipeline tools and image-processing applications, much to the delight of our artists. This dedicated R&D team is priceless when it comes to meeting challenges head on.
