Our Pillars of VFX Excellence

March 3, 2023

In order to have success in the VFX industry, there are vital systems in place that need to be mastered. We found our success by encompassing these four pillars to uphold our standards of quality, teamwork, and execution:

Our VFX Pipeline

Our pipeline is divided into several key stages including pre-production, production, and post-production, each one meticulously planned and executed to deliver exceptional quality visual effects. We have eleven stages, each achieving different requirements allowing for flexibility, adaptability, and the maximum space for creativity and quality no matter the size of the project because of the efficiency this pipeline provides.

A Strong Team

At the heart of our team lies a powerhouse of seasoned supervisors, leads, and senior artists. Our HR department goes to great lengths to handpick the industry's top talent to further strengthen our VFX team. Together, we strive to achieve a synergistic teamwork approach, where each artist not only focuses on their own task but also takes into consideration the work of those before and after them. Our senior members also play a crucial role in mentoring and guiding our junior team members, helping them to grow and develop professionally, while also providing support and solutions for any issues that may arise. Our ultimate goal is to deliver exceptional quality VFX at a rapid pace, and we achieve this through fostering a culture of communication and understanding that every member plays a vital role in the complex process and that a team attitude is essential for achieving fantastic results.

Daily Management and Communication

Our elite team of VFX producers and production managers go to great lengths to meticulously plan every task and ensure seamless communication amongst our artists. Utilizing state-of-the-art tools such as Slack for real-time communication and Shotgrid for production management, we are able to effortlessly collaborate and streamline the process. Shotgrid also allows for seamless client review and feedback integration, ensuring that we deliver the highest quality results.

Uninterrupted Studio Infrastructure

Our team of artists relies on powerful workstations and servers to operate at the highest level of efficiency and deliver visually stunning effects. As we take on increasingly complex projects, we spare no expense in upgrading and improving our equipment and infrastructure to ensure that our team has the necessary tools to succeed. Our technical team works in close collaboration with our Head of Production, pipeline TD, and supervisors, to stay ahead of the curve and anticipate the needs and requirements before and during each project, allowing us to respond quickly to any request.

Our team, pipeline, management, and infrastructure work together to form the backbone of our operation, enabling us to produce awe-inspiring visual effects that consistently exceed expectations, and delivered on time and within budget. We strive to raise the bar with every project, constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world of visual effects. These pillars are the backbone of our VFX services. It is the foundation upon which we deliver visually stunning effects that amaze audiences, and push the boundaries of what is possible, regardless of the project size or budget.
