London post house Molinare has announced a new partnership with Atomic Arts. This coalition unites Molinare, leading post-production supplier for drama, film and documentaries, with Atomic, one of London’s leading visual effects and animation houses for film, television and live events.
Set up by Justin Cornish and Brooke Lyndon-Stanford in the early days of computer-generated imagery (CGI), and joined four years ago by Clwyd Edwards, then head of VFX at MPC, Atomic is now globally recognised for its VFX work on many audience favourites, including Hollywood blockbusters and viral streaming series to the art house realm of independent cinema. 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).
With offices in LA and Mumbai, Atomic Arts’ headquarters are in the heart of London’s West End, close-by Molinare’s premises off Carnaby Street. Atomic plans to take space within Molinare’s two central Soho buildings for its collaborative team of supervisors, artists and animators, and provide a one stop shop for all post-production elements.
Atomic’s Brooke Lyndon-Stanford said, “We have been fans of Molinare for decades and are super-impressed by their dedication, flexibility and talent. 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.
Moliaire managing director Nigel Bennett added: “We’re delighted to partner with the Atomic Arts team, who 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 offer an end-to-end solution in post, VFX and motion capture for the entertainment sector.”
