Goodbye Kansas Studios has opened a pop-up studio in Vancouver.

The studio will entirely be financed by VFX projects and initially only use a work-for-hire model.

Goodbye Kansas says the studio in the established VFX hub of Vancouver has been opened due to growing demand in the VFX market following the pandemic and the need for qualified VFX personnel. It says the studio is a “cost-effective way to come closer to potential customers and partners and enables Goodbye Kansas to build on its momentum.”

“The pandemic has taught us to work effectively remotely and utilize cloud infrastructure. The new studio will make use of all these advantages. Hence no investments are needed in facilities for recording or traditional hardware, investments which have historically been necessary when establishing new studios,” says Markus Manninen, Managing Director at Goodbye Kansas Studios.

The new studio will be led by Peter Muyzers, who is already based in Vancouver. Peter has extensive experience in the VFX industry and has worked with Goodbye Kansas Studios since 2018 with customers primarily in North America.

“Goodbye Kansas Studios in Vancouver will add capacity and a fully flexible cost base as we now face increased demand for VFX productions. The studio will grow organically in line with the productions it brings in and it requires a limited investment to create an increased international presence and to deepen collaborations with both existing and new customers. So the studio will have a positive impact on the company’s working capital from start,” says Peter Levin, CEO of Goodbye Kansas Group.
