ILM Expanding Its Operations Abroad

Category: News
While the state of the visual effects industry, especially in the US, remains an issue, some facilities are expanding their reach.

Industry trades are reporting  that Industrial Light & Magic will be opening a facility in London. That would give the visual effects company a European brnach to augment its home base in San Francisco and its operations in Singapore and Vancouver. 

ILM, which has produced a plethora of VFX-driven films, is a subsidiary of Lucasfilm, now owned by Disney. 

The move is likely sparked by the new Star Wars movie, Episode VII, which is to be produced at Pinewood Studios in the UK. However, look for all ILM locations to contribute to that movie. 

The new studio is expected to open in the spring with 200 employees, many from the London area.
