India’s Prime Focus and U.K.’s Double Negative to Open Mumbai VFX Plant

Prime Focus World and the U.K.’s Double Negative are to establish a joint visual effects facility in Mumbai, India.

The companies say that the facility will be in Mumbai’s Film City and be built to the same, international standards as Double Negative’s studios in London, Vancouver and Singapore. The two companies merged their visual effects operations in June last year.

PFW, a unit of Prime Focus Limited, provides a wide range of visual effects, 3D conversion and animation services. PFW and Double Negative merged their visual effects operations in June last year. Since then they have jointly undertaken VFX and stereo conversion work on “Avengers: Age of Ultron” “Terminator: Genisys,” and “Ant-Man.”

Work on “The Huntsman” for Universal and “Inferno” by Ron Howard are already confirmed for the Mumbai facility.

“Prime Focus is committed to supporting Dneg in achieving its vision of becoming a truly global company in the high-end film industry, and this new state-of-the-art facility will help them to remain creative and competitive across all of their locations,” said Prime Focus founder, executive chairman and global CEO Namit Malhotra.

Other upcoming projects include work on “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” (Warner Bros.); “Insurgent” (Summit); “Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass” (Walt Disney): “Tarzan” (Warner Bros.); “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (Warner Bros.) and “Spectre” (Sony Pictures).

“Prime Focus is the undisputed industry leader in India and knows the market, the culture and the landscape better than any other company,” said Matt Holben, CEO of Double Negative in a statement. “This collaboration plays to the strengths of both companies, the intention being to create a world-class VFX facility that can proudly sit alongside the rest of Double Negative’s global network.”
