Milk is expanding its European footprint with a new visual effects studio in Bordeaux, France.
The new studio will be led by Milk VFX supervisor Andy Morley, whose credits include Avengers: Infinity War, The Swimmers and The Woman King.
Milk said the new studio will operate as a hub for the company’s French hybrid remote and office-based team, leveraging Milk’s London infrastructure in addition to its own local capabilities.
Speaking about the new studio, Jag Mundi, Milk executive chairman said: “Bordeaux with its technical and creative leaning and strong heritage in animation and gaming, will be an excellent base. Our French studio will be pivotal as we continue to build a strong platform for Milk’s growth enabling us to work with a wide range of talent across Europe, to deliver more premium high quality film and episodic content to our clients.”
Andy Morley added: “I’m excited to help Milk expand our potential and harness the rich network of creative VFX talent in France and across Europe, to deliver both film and TV projects working in symphony with the team in London.
“At our French Studio, we will be able to develop a next generation VFX business, built to be client, artist and technology-driven from the outset, focusing on delivering high-end and complex work, initially servicing work sourced through our UK business and then looking to engage in local markets with regional offices of global streamers and national studios such as Studio Canal and Pathe.”
