VFX specialist Framestore, which first began virtual reality (VR) development back in 2014, has today announced the expansion of its VR studio. VR operations will also take place at its Montréal office in Canada.
Framestore’s VR studio has already created some well known VR experiences including 19x Cannes Lion Winner Field Trip to Mars, 2014’s Game of Thrones’ Ascend The Wall, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them VR for Daydream View and SAAM VR.
“Everyone is looking to VR right now,” said Amy Small, Global Head of VR in a statement. “We’re working unilaterally with so many industries that it only made sense to expand our global offering and explore in-depth creative and technological solutions for our partners at every office.”
The company hasn’t said what VR projects the Montréal office will be working on, but since opening four years ago it’s produced work for films such as Paddington, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Arrival. Current film projects include Beauty and The Beast, Blade Runner 2049 and Alien Covenant.
As VR operations are due to begin in the Spring, VRFocus will bring you further details as we get them.
