Technicolor announced this week that it will launch Mill Film, a new vfx studio located in Adelaide, Australia. The company has promised the local South Australia government that it will staff up to 500 employees at the facility within five years.
Technicolor has no shortage of vfx houses. They also own MPC, The Mill, Mikros, and Mr. X. The new facility will work with clients not currently serviced by those other studios, with a focus on creating film visual effects for major studios and streaming services. The studio also intends to work on immersive media projects such as virtual and augmented reality.
“The move will allow Technicolor to access vfx talent that is already in Australia and provides another hub from which to service our global clients,” said Frederic Rose, CEO of Technicolor. “The Technicolor facility in Adelaide expands our footprint in the region, while enhancing the support we can provide clients who require world-class talent to work on productions around the globe – and around the clock.”
