More consolidation in the vfx industry: Crafty Apes has acquired Molecule VFX, having worked alongside the studio on several productions.
Crafty Apes’s management team in New York will work with the leaders of Molecule VFX to integrate the companies and expand their operations in the city, under the Crafty Apes banner. The new studio will double Crafty Apes’s footprint in the city. It will continue to work on features, commercials, streaming, and episodic content, as well as providing front-end creative consultation and on-set supervision.
Founded in 2011 in L.A., Crafty Apes has expanded to seven production facilities across North America. Its credits include the features Spider-Man: No Way Home, Red Notice, Licorice Pizza, and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and the series Ted Lasso, Insecure, and Stranger Things.
