Our Services

Visual Effects For Film & Television

We work closely with our clients to provide concept designs, pre-visualization, supervision, and visual effects production offering a full range of visual effects services from computer-generated animation and compositing, to explosive volumetric digital effects. Below are our areas of specialization.

Creatures

Velociraptors, undead mutants, fantastical beasts – we don’t just create creatures. We create core characters in immersive stories.

Environments

Our environments make what’s impossible on set feel like real life on screen, transporting viewers into brand new worlds of sci-fi and fantasy.

FX + Simulations

We bend the elements to our will. Our robust FX pipeline means we can harness the laws of nature, conjuring moments audiences will never forget.

Invisible VFX

We don’t just create the impossible, we also delve into the authentic by producing highly nuanced and subtle effects for film and television.

Other Tricks In Our Bag

From script to screen, we bring ideas off the page at all stages of the creative process.

Digi Doubles

Whether it’s stunt replacements or full-frame CG actors, our digi-doubles are indistinguishable from the real thing.

Previs

Planning is key. Our previs team ensures even the most ambitious visual effects concepts can be brought to life.

Postvis

Previs doesn’t stop after principal photography wraps – we’ll continue to explore ideas until every shot is delivered to perfection.

Concept Art

We love building worlds – it all starts in the minds of our artists, who commit universes of imagination to paper.

4K Screening Room

Image Engine’s state-of-the-art screening room houses a Christie 4K DLP Cinema® projector, providing a top-notch reviewing environment for our clients. This installation is the first in Vancouver to offer 4K digital technology for visual effects services.

Christie’s CP4430 was chosen for its advanced technical capabilities, which include greater image detail, truer and more accurate colour rendition, and crisp resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, with 34,000 lumens brightness and 3D capabilities. Providing four times the resolution of standard 2K digital cinema, our crew and clients can review our work at the highest image resolution possible today.
