Point.360 Acquires Eden FX

Hollywood, Calif. - Point.360, a provider of integrated media management services, has announced the acquisition of Eden FX, a Hollywood-based independent creator of visual effects for feature films, television programs, and commercial advertising content.
Eden FX has been providing visual effects for television, feature films, and TV commercials. Among Eden’s TV credits are “Ghost Whisperer,” “Lost,” “24,” “The Office,” “Surface,” “Invasion,” “Six Feet Under,” and the entire run of UPN’s “Star Trek: Enterprise.”  
Eden has contributed visual effects to feature films including Superman Returns, Across the Universe, Idlewild, Hellboy, and The Last Mimzy.            
“Content creation across all media is in continual need of highly realistic, imaginative, and intriguing visual effects," Haig S. Bagerdjian, Point.360’s chairman, president and CEO, says. "Due to the lower costs of digital content as compared to the costs of live production, more heightened ‘realism’ has been made possible by today’s highly skilled artists using sophisticated software. This offers producers of films, TV programs, and commercials more production flexibility and time savings. Eden will give Point.360 another means by which to cement relations with our existing customers by significantly increasing our 'from camera to customer' service offering, and adds Eden customers to our postproduction client portfolio.”
