Aussie VFX & Animation Co. Iloura Merges with Method Studios

After integrating operationally over the past year, Deluxe sister companies Iloura and Method have unified their VFX forces under the Method Studios brand, and launched a new merged website today. Now with a team across Melbourne, Sydney, Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York, Pune, Chicago and Atlanta, Method is a growing global VFX player with a hand in feature films, episodics, design, advertising and immersive experiences.

“We’ve been quietly building something new here; bringing together the best of what each studio has developed around the world – whether it’s production processes, artistry, sales and marketing, technology or culture. We’re now one of the biggest VFX studios in the world,” said Method’s President & GM, Ed Ulbrich. “Our ability to take on larger and more meaningful pieces of big features, to act as sole or co-lead vendor, choose our projects, and produce the stunning work these teams are creating doesn’t come from one studio or brand alone. It’s a combination of the best of everything we have to offer.”

Iloura brings a 30-year legacy of stand-out animation and VFX work to the unified powerhouse, with teams that earned a 216 VFX Emmy for Game of Thrones, and VFX Oscar nominations for Mad Max: Fury Road and Deepwater Horizon. Top talent led by award-winning VFX supervisor Glenn Melenhorst and VFX Producer/EP Ineke Majoor in Melbourne, and GM Jeanette Manifold in Sydney, will bring their creative skills to an expanding set of clients through Method. Simon Rosenthal continues his 20-plus year leadership of the teams, now as Method Head of VFX, Australia. Iloura recently wrapped work for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Bright for Netflix, as well as Game of Thrones Season 7 “Spoils of War” and Thor: Ragnarok.

Founded in 1998, Method has evolved from a boutique Los Angeles studio to global VFX powerhouse, with an experience group of 30 VFX supervisors and creative leads delivering in-demand design, visual effects and immersive work. Recent features include Thor: Ragnarok, Okja and the VFX Oscar-nominated Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2; with upcoming releases Black Panther, Aquaman, A Wrinkle in Time, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Avengers: Infinity War, Christopher Robin, The New Mutants, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Deadpool 2 among its current projects in production.
