After eight years in Santa Monica, creative digital studio MPC LA is moving to larger quarters in nearby Culver City.
MPC is part of Technicolor’s portfolio of effects companies. The new 25,000-square-foot space is about twice the size of the facility’s former home. It will house the company’s MPC Film and MPC Advertising units.
With the move, MPC Advertising will see its resources enhanced with additional visual effects, color, and finishing capabilities. The space includes virtual reality and augmented reality infrastructure and will also host the unit’s MPC Creative production arm.
Services offered by MPC Film include pre-production support, concept and production design, previs and visual development, preliminary bidding and budgeting, and vfx supervision representation.
“We continue to be inspired by crafting the very best visual experiences in collaboration with the finest creative, production and technology minds,” says MPC’s global CEO Mark Benson. “Moving into an integrated space for both our film and advertising businesses in Culver City allows MPC to better service the needs of the creative community.”
The new space features a screening room with 3D stereo, HD, and 2K/4K projection.
