Technicolor’s MPC has announced a new episodic visual effects division, which aims to fill a demand brought on by an unprecedented amount of new, high-quality content being commissioned by streaming services.


MPC, which is known for its photoreal VFX and animation work will offer episodic directors and producers access to technology and talent behind blockbusters such as The Lion King, 1917, Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King of The Monsters.


The episodic division will be headquartered at MPC’s London studio and expands on Technicolor’s portfolio of film and episodic VFX studios, Mill Film, Mr. X and Mikros.


The division will be overseen by MD Thomas Williams, previously COO for MPC Film, who before joining MPC, Williams spent 10 years at Sky, working in production planning and technical development for Sky Studios. 


The MPC Episodic team will be led by Executive VFX Supervisor, Pete Jopling (The Bourne Legacy, Captain America: Civil War, Chernobyl), Head of Creative Gurel Mehmet (The Witcher, Avengers: Endgame, Inception) and Senior Producer Therese Zambra (Mars, Frontline).


Of the launch, Thomas Williams said “The episodic landscape has changed at an extraordinary pace, and now feels like the perfect time to launch this exciting new division. MPC has been behind some of the most awe inspiring film and commercials work of the last decade and is well positioned to bring its phenomenal expertise to the episodic community.”
