Jellyfish Pictures has
announced the opening of its new facility in Sheffield. The new studio is the result of the company outgrowing its current location following the expansion to the North of England less than a year ago.
Opening its Northern arm in May 2019, Jellyfish Pictures has seen rapid growth in both its Southern and Northern UK offices over the course of the past year. The newest studio will house the burgeoning animation team, which has more than doubled in size in the past three months.
The swift expansion is a testament to the innovative virtual technologies Jellyfish Pictures has been pioneering since 2014 and comes shortly after the company’s announcement, made in December 2019, where it became the World’s largest virtual VFX and Animation studio. As with all other Jellyfish Pictures locations, there is no hardware housed onsite in the new Sheffield studio, situated in the city centre within the state-of-the-art Wizu Workspace. Operating in a completely PC over IP environment all technology and pipeline is housed in a centrally based co-location in Hayes. The studio is able to virtualise its distributed workstations through Teradici’s remote visualisation solution; allowing for total flexibility and scalability.
The team working out of Jellyfish Pictures’ Sheffield studio is being overseen by Animation Director, Kevin Spruce, with a Hollywood animated feature film currently in-production.
