POP companies, Digital Magic, Riot merge

Four post-production houses, POP Film, POP Animation, Digital Magic and Riot have merged to form R!OT, what execs describe as a full-service center for clients ranging from advertising to interactive television companies.

“We were collaborating on a regular basis and we realized we had a very complimentary vision on how things should be done,” Riot managing director Richard Cormier said.

POP Film and POP Animation were the houses behind “Titanic” and “Independence Day.” Digital Magic does the effects for “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Voyager.” Riot specializes in commercials and musicvideos.
