Deluxe Entertainment Services Group has acquired Centro Digital Pictures, provider of vfx, animation and post-production services to U.S. and Chinese filmmakers in Hong Kong, the company announced Thursday.
Centro will be integrated into Deluxe Australia’s biz, giving international customers a gateway to partner with Hong Kong and Chinese filmmakers while enhancing access for Asian producers looking to deliver content into North America and Europe.
John Chu, general manger of Centro, will continue to run the business, reporting to Alaric McAusland, managing director of Deluxe Australia.
“Centro has brought together a tremendously talented team over the past 20 years,” McAusland said. “It has grown to be a leading provider not just for local but international filmmakers as well.”
Centro’s credits include Stephen Chow’s “Kung Fu Hustle,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” and Disney’s 2011 hit “The Muppets.”
