The VFX division behind Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Rogue One, Shadow and Bone, and The Walking Dead is opening a 32,000-square-foot studio in Pune, Maharashtra.
Ghost VFX, Streamland Media’s visual effects division that has worked on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Rogue One, Shadow and Bone, The Walking Dead, and The Book Of Boba Fett, is opening a new studio in India.
The 32,000-square-foot studio will be opened in Pune, Maharashtra early next year and will offer clients "the full range of high-end visual effects through cloud-based technology and an industry-leading talent roster." The employees there will be offered a hybrid work approach, with the ability to work from home and in the office. The new studio will be led by Ghost VFX India Vice President and Head of Studio Prashant Shitole, who has produced VFX for features, streaming, animation, and games and worked as head of production at MPC, The Mill, Double Negative, and Method Studios.
"We are very excited to establish Ghost VFX in India, which is a critical part of expanding our worldwide services," says Ghost VFX President Patrick Davenport. "Our leadership team has been working in India for over a decade, and we’re thrilled to be collaborating again with some of the very best artists in the business. Our experience has shown what works – and what doesn’t! We are building a creative environment and culture which will support the teams in all our studios, enabling us to work seamlessly together across the globe."
Other than Pune, Ghost VFX has locations in Los Angeles, Copenhagen, London, Manchester, Toronto, and Vancouver. Read more about this on its website.
