Start Date



Well known for our work on Neill Blomkamp’s District 9, Image Engine has gone on to create numerous incredible creatures, epic environments and extraordinary digital effects for a broad range of feature films! We are 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 at our studio.


VFX Editors at Image Engine play a very important role in the quality control and final output of our work. VFX Editors are responsible for all set up and completion of all editorial work for show delivery, demo reels or any additional promotional pieces.
