Digital Domain, one of the most innovative studios for visual effects and immersive experiences, has announced Montréal as its newest studio location.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the company is known for its work on blockbuster feature films like Titanic, Avengers: Infinity War, Thor: Ragnarok, and Ready Player One, in addition to virtual performer tech. Digital Domain is the company that brought Dr. Dre’s vision of “Virtual Tupac” to life, which earned a 2012 Titanium Lion Award from the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
The Montréal studio joins eight existing Digital Domain locations including Los Angeles, Vancouver, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Taipei and Hyderabad.
Digital Domain Montréal will open in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood, starting Mar. 1, 2019 and will mirror previous studio locations, opening with a full arsenal of production services. The company says 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 Daniel Seah, executive director and CEO, in a press release. “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, moulding the future of Digital Domain.”
