Digital Domain Montreal Adds Over 130 New Artists to its Ranks, Bringing the Total Number of Employees Worldwide to Over 1,500
Today, Digital Domain, the Academy Award-winning visual effects studio, officially launches Digital Domain Montréal, its ninth location worldwide. The Montréal studio will focus on feature films, episodic and streaming while supporting other groups within the multi-faceted VFX house. The official opening marks the fourth new location for Digital Domain since 2016, with all locations – including the new Montréal office – reporting directly to Los Angeles, the headquarters of Digital Domain’s VFX business.
“We are fully committed to our visual effects business in North America, as it’s integral to our global roadmap,” said Group Executive Director and CEO Daniel Seah. “Montréal is a vibrant city and a strategic location for us to expand our network of studios, rounding out the time zones of our 24-hour global organization. We are appreciative of the guidance and assistance we’ve received from the Québec government, Montréal International and Investissement Québec in welcoming Digital Domain to the Montréal VFX community.”
Digital Domain Montréal will immediately house around 130 new artists and staff who will collaborate and share work with the nearly 1,500 Digital Domain employees around the world. The new studio is already working on several projects and will soon be working on projects for Marvel, Sony and 20th Century Studios to name but a few.
