“We are genre-agnostic and aim to bring sophisticated visual effects to any media endeavor, whether it’s feature films, music videos, web projects or advertising campaigns.

Our arsenal of tools – which is second-to-none in the world – allows us to achieve that and includes Flame, Smoke, XSI, Maya, PF Track, Luster, Da Vinci, and Adobe Suite. With a true understanding of these, both technically and artistically, we will continue to create film that feels more like a piece of art instead of just another project off the assembly line.�
