Technicolor and Ms Pauline Marois, the Premier of Quebec, have announced the opening of a new visual effects studio which will employ more than 200 artists in Montreal.
The new studio, opening on 28 October under the brand MPC, covers more than 2,300 square metres in the old town of Montreal and will serve the rapidly expanding Montreal film market.
This installation, promoted by the Government of Quebec, which actively supports this industry through fiscal measures and interest-free loans, will complement an existing network of six studios in London, Vancouver, New York, Santa Monica, Bangalore and Amsterdam.
The team in Montreal is already hard at work on projects such as Into the Woods (Walt Disney Pictures), X-Men Days of Future Past (Twentieth Century Fox) and Cinderella (Walt Disney Pictures).
Furthermore, the group has announced that it will be relocating all its post-production installations to a single site equipped with the very latest technology.
By doing so, Technicolor is pursuing its strategy aimed at extending both its range of products and services and its geographical presence while developing new solutions designed to support its customers in the digital transition.
