Pioneering VFX house Digital Domain is opening a new location in Montreal, Québec, in conjunction with its 25th anniversary in March. The studio has eight existing locations in Los Angeles, Vancouver, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Taipei and Hyderabad. Founded by James Cameron, Scott Ross and Stan Winston in 1993, Digital Domain now extends its reach and capacity across multiple studios in North America, Greater China and India with a deep talent pool of award-winning supervisors, artists, technicians and R&D teams.
Digital Domain Montréal will open in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood starting March 1, 2019. The new studio will mirror previous studio, opening with a full arsenal of production services. The space will start at 10,000 square feet, with expansion plans already in place.
“Montréal is fueled by creativity and innovation, and was an obvious choice for the next studio location for Digital Domain,” said Digital Domain executive director and CEO Daniel Seah. “Given the strong animation and visual effects talent pool in Montréal, we are stacking the deck to make this studio location an attractive offering to partners, molding the future of Digital Domain.”
