Rhythm & Hues Plans Feature Expansion

Visual effects house Rhythm & Hues is moving to make and co-own its own CG features, hiring an in-house development exec and planning a production facility in Malaysia.

Venecia Duran, formerly of Vanguard, has joined the company as director of development and is taking submissions, reports Variety. Executives say they hope to announce a co-production deal for a feature film within a few months.

R&H already has two facilities in India, in addition to its Culver City headquarters. The Malaysia facility would be built from the ground up and animators trained at its India facilities.
