Pinewood Shepperton, the country’s biggest studio, has worked on “Pirates of the Caribbean: At Stranger Tides” and “Robin Hood,” while Framestore, one of the largest digital vfx houses outside the U.S., has worked on titles including the “Harry Potter” franchise and “Avatar.”

Norris said: “We want Apollo to help productions of all sizes and budgets access the U.K.’s talent pool and locations.”
