Cambridge based vfx house, Vine FX has opened a new 2,000 sq ft VFX studio, doubling its capacity to 30 artists.

Vine FX worked with Escape Technology to kit out the new facility, investing £150,000 in technology such as superfast fibre connectivity, half a petabyte of storage, and tools including Nuke, Maya, Arnold and Flame.

The company has recently worked on BBC1’s Troy: Fall Of A City and Sky Atlantic’s Patrick Melrose as well as ITV’s The Widow and Cold War drama, Summer Of Rockets for Little Island Productions that started airing on BBC 1 this week.

Most recently the Vine FX team provided VFX for the soon to be released fifth series of Black Mirror for Netflix. Vine was also sole vendor on ITV’s upcoming Beecham House and is currently working on Fox Networks and Canal Plus’ adaptation of War Of The Worlds.

Vine FX was launched 12 years ago by VFX Supervisor Michael Illingworth, starting life in Soho before relocating to Illingworth’s home town of Cambridge in 2016.
Illingworth previously worked at facilities Mill Film and Cinesite and for Warner Bros Studios, on shows including, Gladiator, the Harry Potter films, Black Hawk Down, Atlantis, and Fantastic Beasts.
