Prime Focus Acquires Nuke Site License

Visual effects house Prime Focus has signed up for a site license to The Foundry’s compositing application Nuke.

Prime Focus began in India in 1997 and has grown into a major visual entertainment services company. It employs more than 1,200 people on three continents and has used its global digital pipeline approach in contributing to such recent film as Robin Hood, Avatar and The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

‘Nuke’s open infrastructure, forward thinking roadmap, support and proactive engineering team will enable true integration of the software into our global digital pipeline,’ says Anshul Doshi, Global COO at Prime Focus.

‘Prime Focus are an exceptional company with a unique Global approach,’ says Bill Collis, CEO of The Foundry. ‘Their decision to incorporate Nuke across London, India (Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Goa), Vancouver, L.A. and Winnipeg gives them an unrivalled geographical footprint. We are excited to be working with them and look forward to seeing where the relationship takes us.’
