Based in Vancouver BC, we are a world-class visual effects studio led by a team of creative and passionate individuals who are committed to furthering the art of visual storytelling, and helping our exceptionally talented crew to push the boundaries of artistic and technical achievement.

Well known for our Academy Award Nominated work on Neill Blomkamp’s District 9, we have gone on to create numerous incredible creatures, epic environments and extraordinary digital effects for a broad range of feature films including:

Our portfolio reflects our involvement from the very first stages of production, collaborating closely with our filmmaker clients to provide concept designs, pre-visualization, supervision and visual effects production; and offer a full range of visual effects services from computer-generated animation and compositing, to explosive volumetric digital effects.

Since opening in 1995, we have grown our capabilities steadily – handling an expanded range of work, frequently working on multiple projects simultaneously, and managing entire visual effects services for films such as Straight Outta Compton, Zero Dark Thirty and Elysium.

We can do this because we place awesome new tools in the hands of our artists. R&D is central to our philosophy of driving creativity through innovation, with a focus on continually evolving our robust production pipelines and pioneering in the area of proprietary software development.

Partnership with Cinesite

In July of 2015 we merged with Cinesite, an industry leader in visual effects and feature animation services. This alliance ensures that both our companies are well positioned to deliver world-class visual effects and animation services to our mutual global customer base.
