Streamland Media has announced that as part of its ongoing strategy to expand its global customer offering, it will fully integrate its Picture Shop visual effects division, and all other VFX business, under one global brand, Ghost VFX effective today.
In January of 2020, Picture Shop, a subsidiary of Streamland Media, acquired Ghost VFX and has since operated VFX divisions under both brands. Bill Romeo, CEO of Streamland Media, states, “The integration of Picture Shop VFX under the Ghost VFX brand will further solidify the industry-leading position of our entertainment vertical, especially the overall growth potential of our brands and their ability to provide end-to-end post-production service offerings on a global level.”
Over the last 20 years, Ghost VFX has become well-known as one of the most innovative visual effects studios in the world. Combined, both brands have over one hundred VFX contributions to block-buster feature films, top television shows and interactive media. In addition, they boast an incredible roster of award-winning talent. Tom Kendall, who headed Picture Shop VFX, will now assume the role of President for Ghost VFX worldwide at their newly established headquarters in Los Angeles. Ghost Co-founder and EVP, Jeppe Nygaard Christensen and SVP, Phillip Prahl will remain an integral part of the brand based in Copenhagen.
Tom Kendall, President of Ghost VFX, added, “I’m very excited about combining both teams as it strengthens our award-winning VFX services worldwide while concentrating our growing team of talent and expertise under one global brand. With strategic focus on the customer experience, we are confident that Ghost VFX will continue to be a partner of choice for leading storytellers around the world.”
