B.C. digs for Look

Look Effects opens Vancouver location

Visual effects house Look Effects has opened a Vancouver location in the Gastown district.

The company already has offices in Los Angeles and Gotham. It joins a slew of other production and vfx companies with facilities in Vancouver, including Pixar, Digital Domain, and Rhythm & Hues, among others.

Look Effects prez Mark Driscoll told Variety that the company had been looking at Vancouver for “about 10 years.” The drive to open a Canuck outpost “came down to flexibility,” he said. “Clients wanted to be able to work with Look, but in locations that were preferential because of tax incentives and shooting locations.”

The vfx company will staff the Vancouver branch with Canadian talent. Its first project in Vancouver will be Summit’s horror pic “Warm Bodies.”
