Commercials VFX company, Absolute Post, has opened up a feature film and TV post arm on the back of its work for indie feature film American Animals and Netflix series, Maniac.

American Animals, the latest heist film from Director Bart Layton, blends documentary and drama to tell the story of four students from Kentucky who plotted to steal $12M in rare art and books.

Absolute also provided vfx work on upcoming Netflix show Maniac, a psychological drama based on the Norwegian television series of the same name. Maniac, written by The Bridge (US) writer Patrick Somerville and directed by Cary Fukunaga, stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.

Dan Bennett, MD of Absolute said: “Our newly launched film and TV division, was set up in direct response to an increasing number of requests for complex VFX work on long form content. The team approached these two new post projects as we have previous high-end feature projects, notably with RSA and Luke Scott for the TED2023 film. "We are very excited to be able to offer Film and Television partners the same level of creative thinking and service that our advertising clients have enjoyed for the past 14 years”.
