Atomic Arts makes moves with Molinare
Post facility Molinare has announced a partnership with VFX and animation house Atomic Arts. The London-based linkup sees the boutique firm taking space within Molinare’s two central Soho Buildings.
Atomic Arts has its HQ in the heart of London’s West End, with offices in LA and Mumbai, while Molinare’s headquarters are situated just off Carnaby Street. The new venture will be known as Atomic@Molinare.
Set up by Justin Cornish and Brooke Lyndon-Stanford in 1994, and joined four years ago by Clwyd Edwards, then head of VFX at MPC, Atomic’s recent work includes IT: Chapters 1 & 2 (Warner Bros), Rocketman (Paramount) and Dumbo (Disney). Streaming work includes Avenue 5 and Game of Thrones (HBO), Stranger Things (Netflix) and World on Fire (BBC).
“We’re delighted to partner with Atomic Arts team,” said Molinare MD Nigel Bennett. “[They bring] over 27 years of experience in visual effects as one of the leading boutique facilities in the world. The synergies between both companies truly offers an end-to-end solution in post, VFX and motion capture for the entertainment sector.”
“We have been fans of Molinare for decades and are super impressed by their dedication, flexibility and talent,” said Brooke Lyndon-Stanford. “We have already worked on so many shows running through the Molinare pipe that we can’t think of a better fit than this combination. We feel at home at Molinare and really hope you find your home here too.”
The news follows the announcement last winter of Molinare teaming up with Centroid to offer a hybrid facility in Soho. Situated in Molinare’s loft space, Centroid@Molinare aims to create cinematic character pipelines, with a seamless workflow from casting to full performance capture with voice recording.
