Tokyo-based Polygon Pictures (PPI) is opening a new studio in India. Polygon Studios India Private Limited will be a wholly owned subsidiary specialized in rigging work.
Located in Thane, a satellite city of Mumbai, Polygon India will address what the company describes as a “shortage of staff” among rigging artists. The studio will hire Indian staff who used to work for Polygon in Japan or at its Malaysian joint venture Silver Ant-PPI.
PPI says that many of its major cg outsourcing partners are already based in India. As such, the creation of Polygon India will facilitate communication and production orders with these partners.
