Superheroes, fantastic beasts, dinosaurs of the 21st century, and galaxies undiscovered. Cinesite is an award-winning digital entertainment studio with 30 years of experience and work on hundreds of film, TV and streaming productions. Our visual effects and animation teams breathe life into filmmakers’ visions. Alongside our skilled artists and engineers, we work closely with filmmakers and studios to achieve the impossible, whether through complex visual effects or conceiving and realizing entire animated films. We tinker, mold, and craft to blow things out of the water – sometimes literally.
We make visual effects magic at our studios in London, Montreal and Vancouver, and since 2015 we have also welcomed the visual effects masters at Image Engine (Vancouver) and Trixter (Munich and Berlin) to the Cinesite family. Individually we are strong. Collectively, we have more than 75 years’ experience and the capacity to take on any production, whatever the scale.
In 2013, drawing on the talent and expertise we developed in visual effects, Cinesite extended our services into feature animation. As we continue to deliver productions to MGM, Walt Disney Animation Studio and Sony Pictures Animation, we also now have a production output deal with content creation and IP production company Aniventure. With them, we create family-oriented films, all fantastically original in style and tone.
It has been an incredible 30 years since the original team which formed Cinesite was assembled in Burbank, Los Angeles, to restore the cinematic classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Over the past three decades we have grown to become one of largest independent entertainment service studios in the world. Our Anniversary page includes an interactive timeline and legacy reel, which looks back at some of our most memorable landmark moments.
