Major VFX Studio to move into old MINI Yaletown dealership

by Techvibes NewsDesk

Technicolor's visual effects studio Moving Picture Co. has announced plans for expansion and they're coming North.

MPC Vancouver will move early next year into a 48,000-square-foot facility at 1132 Hamilton Street in Yaletown - the former MINI dealership. With more than 300 artists in Vancouver, MPC will become the city's largest vfx facility.

According to a report in Variety Magazine today, visual effects and animation work is flowing to Vancouver, drawn by Canada's incentives. Besides MPC, Pixar and Digital Domain also have branches in Vancouver.

MPC's current projects include Sherlock Holmes 2, Jack the Giant Killer, Life of Pi and Journey to Mysterious Island.
