Technicolor Creative Studios is planning to launch a number of global creative hubs in London, New York, Shanghai and Los Angeles.
The hubs in London and New York will see The Moving Picture Company (MPC) and The Mill share studio space, bringing the brands closer together under the joint leadership of Mark Benson (CEO, MPC) and Josh Mandel (CEO, The Mill).
Technicolor Creative Studios already has successful, co-located creative hubs in Paris and Bangalore.
The full suite of Technicolor Creative Studios brands across entertainment and advertising will share a creative hub and innovation centre in Culver City, Los Angeles. According to the company, the studio “will retain its own unique brand identity and creative talent whilst enjoying the benefits of a co-located studio environment and world class facilities”.
“Our aspiration is to develop our creative hubs to be the next Google, WhatsApp, Instagram, Sony or Publicis campuses; an unrivalled network of VFX studios located in major international cities ensuring we can continue to service the world’s biggest clients across film, episodic and advertising,” said Christian Roberton, president of Technicolor Creative Studios.
The London creative hub will be based in Soho.
