BOSTON — Brickyard VFX Boston (www.brickyardvfx.com)
has moved to a location near downtown Boston in the Leather District. The 8,000-square-foot studio is located within a 100-year-old factory that was retrofitted with Brickyard’s collection of vintage doors, furniture, walls, windows, and floors. Brickyard was founded in 1999, and this marks the company’s third location, moving from its previous home on Newbury Street.
The new space houses seven Autodesk Flame bays, multiple CG workstations, a four-wall edit room, expanded production offices, and a screening room that allows for virtual grading sessions with Company 3 colorists in Los Angeles, New York and Atlanta. Each of the new Flame bays also has an assistant station.
“We finally have the elbow room we always wanted,” notes EP Kirsten Andersen. “We love the neighborhood, it’s right on the edge of downtown and most of our Boston-based clients are within walking distance.”
“We loved this building and were able to restore the old character, from the paint and exposed brick to the original factory floors and beams,” adds Brickyard VFX co-founder, Dave Waller. “We designed the layout of this new space from scratch, custom tailored to meet the needs of our artists, staff and clients, and to accommodate some of our crazy vintage pieces as well. Every single nut and bolt and antique door was moved over from our prior space, with many fantastic new additions to boot.”
