Outpost VFX opens Montreal studio
Outpost VFX of Bournemouth, UK has opened its first international facility in Montreal. The company specializes in visual effects for film, television and other creative projects. The studio will be headed by Becca Scott, who has joined Outpost as head of production for North America. James Rustad has also joined the Montreal location as a VFX supervisor. He was most recently at Double Negative.
“In response to the ongoing boom in highly-creative HETV and film projects, the time felt absolutely right to open another facility to continue to provide exceptional service to our clients and satisfy demand,” said Duncan McWilliam, CEO of Outpost VFX. “With its generous film tax relief system, supportive government and incredible visual effects talent base, Montreal leapt out at us as the most exciting location for our first overseas studio. After more than 12 months of careful planning it's fantastic to finally realize our goal of opening a facility in Canada.”
