Pixomondo is opening its twelfth facility in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, planning to service film,
TV and commercial productions shooting locally and around the world.
|The occasion was marked with a press conference with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Baton Rouge Mayor-President Melvin Holden and Pixomondo Founder Thilo Kuther held at Raleigh Studios Baton Rouge at the Celtic Media Centre in recognition of the local film, television and advertising production community. This announcement follows the Academy Award win by Pixomondo’s VFX Supervisor Ben Grossmann and Digital Effects Supervisor Alex Henning for their work on ‘Hugo’ leading over 400 Pixomondo artists worldwide.|
|Pixomondo plans to open a facility with between 50-70 staff servicing film, television and commercial productions shooting in Louisiana and around the world as part of the company’s worldwide network. Louisiana has been offering a 30-35 per cent tax incentive for film and TV production since 2002 and has attracted several projects in that time. Recent productions shot in the state include ‘Battleship’ the ‘Twilight’ series, ‘Battle LA’ ‘Green Lantern’ and others.
The Pixomondo facility will open at Celtic Media Centre adjacent to the Raleigh Studios Louisiana outpost in May 2012. Pixomondo’s founder Thilo Kuther said they have connected with the Louisiana State University science department to help set up remote render farms and virtualization with their other studios. www.pixomondo.com
