Category: News
Los Angeles, Calif. – Prime Focus, global visual entertainment services group, announced a significant capital investment and expansion of its global Stereoscopic 3D (S3D) pipeline.

Finishing touches are underway at the company’s new 65,000 square foot world headquarters in Mumbai, which will house seven S3D theaters and over 600 artist seats, along with a complete slate of visual effects, post and production services.

At its Hollywood studio, efforts will be re-focused exclusively on delivering S3D creative services including 2D-to-3D conversions and S3D editorial and visual effects for entertainment clients in film, television, advertising, and mobile content. To support this expansion, Prime Focus is building out 200 new artist seats, and has upgraded much of its pre-existing post infrastructure (DI suites, Telecine Bays, and Theatres) into S3D-enabled spaces supporting both RealD and Dolby stereo projection. In addition, plans are in progress to build a new 45-seat stereo-enabled screening room.

The Hollywood studio has also hired notable stereoscopic supervisor Jeremy Nicolaides, whose credits include Alice in Wonderland, Arabia 3D, G-Force 3D, Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D, U2 3D, and more. Additionally, Prime Focus producer Bridgitte Krupke has been appointed Executive Producer, and Chris Del Conte as Senior Producer, both overseeing 2D-to-3D conversion projects.

At Prime Focus London, a 2D-to-3D conversion pipeline has recently been installed, and the company plans to expand into a new space to accommodate an additional 200 visual effects artists.

All of Prime Focus‚ 16 international locations are connected over its Global Digital Pipeline. At its heart is CLEAR, the company’s proprietary Content Lifecycle Management platform that acts as a collaborative digital workspace where media assets can be archived, accessed, managed, and ultimately distributed.
