Toronto, Ont. — February 15, 2011 — Building on its success as Canada’s leading production studio for digital animation, Starz Animation Toronto has recently opened a visual effects and creature animation wingÂ to leverage its strong reputation for quality and reliability into the live action market. Bolstered by a team of VFX leadership and artists who’d found earlier success at the former C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures in Toronto, the Starz Animation Toronto VFX crew, already topping 100, has in short order attracted a trio of high-profile projects, with more in the pipeline, according to Head of Studio David Steinberg.
Leading the company’s upcoming VFX slate:
- “Camelot,” an Irish-Canadian co-production starring Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green and Jamie Campbell Bower, being produced for the Toronto studio’s parent company Starz Entertainment and OscarÂ®-winner Graham King’s GK-tv, whose first foray into TV is this epic retelling of the King Arthur legend.Â Starz Animation Toronto is delivering all 600 shots for this ambitious project, set to air on Starz starting April 1.
