Framestore has announced the acquisition of post production and visual effects business Company 3 / Method (C3M), which it says will lead to the creation of the only global creative services studio working across every part of the creative and production process.
Financial details of the acquisition have not been revealed, however Framestore has partnered with Aleph Capital and Crestview Partners on the deal.
“Our vision for the future of our industry is storytelling across all the media of content delivery – from mobile to IMAX; and headset to theme parks,” said Sir William Sargent, co-founder and CEO of Framestore. “Stories originated in one medium need to be able to travel across all of these and be adapted creatively and technically for each. I have long admired Stefan Sonnenfeld and his achievements and our expanded team will lead in the innovation of this new content world.”
Company 3’s founder and Company 3 / Method president, Stefan Sonnenfeld added, “The partnership represents the combining of two great teams, both bringing world class expertise from our respective fields. What we have achieved as individual companies sets the tone for what we can deliver as a united force. The road ahead represents an incredibly exciting journey that I am thrilled about.”
