VFX house, NVIZ, has closed citing the recent WGA and SAG strikes that caused a huge drop off in work for the UK vfx industry.
NVIZ md, Luke Kaile, made the official announcement on a Linkedin post saying “Many of you will now be aware NVIZ has had to close its doors due to the impact of the WGA and SAG strikes. I’ve been at NVIZ for 10 years, going through finance, operations and eventually becoming managing director, it is a place that I truly love. An independent company that has completed a staggering amount of work in VFX, GFX, visualisation and virtual production for major features and HETV.
NVIZ’s recent titles include Matilda the Musical, The Witcher, Black Mirror 6 and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
The vfx and and visualisation studio appointed Head of Studio, Luke Kaile, as Managing Director to run NVIZ alongside Creative Director, Chris Lunney in early January.
Kaile went on to say “It’s incredibly sad that NVIZ, after all that incredible effort & hard work, has had its fate be decided by something not within the company’s control. We worked on every scenario possible, our focus always being solely on staff retention over everything else.
“All of the staff deserve bright futures and we’re all utterly distraught to be losing the working environment we worked so hard to foster together. I can’t wait to see what everyone goes on to do next.”
