Mill Film & Magic Camera Morph Into One

In December 1999, Mill Film announced that they united operations with

sister company Magic Camera. The combination will create a formidable

start-to-finish London-based feature film facility mixing Mill's visual

effects talent and technical strengths with the digital effects, miniature

construction and photography of Magic Camera and Magic Models. Antony Hunt

will serve as managing director of Mill Film and will take charge of day to

day operations of the combined companies. Hunt has been at the helm of

Magic Camera and Magic Models for the past 11 years. Robin Shenfield, group

managing director, commented, "We are executing our strategy to broaden our

business and capitalize on the synergies between Mill Film and Magic. Mill

Film is the only British film effects facility to have a studio base that

offers years of experience in feature film making plus some of the best

digital visual effects talent and technology based from Soho." Magic Camera

has over 80 film credits to date and has recently worked on projects such

as THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II and ENTRAPMENT. Mill Film

has gained credits which include BABE, ENEMY OF THE STATE and

DreamWorks-Universal epic GLADIATOR. Mill Motion Control has worked on

feature films including THE MUMMY, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN and SLEEPY HOLLOW,

plus a whole host of music videos and commercials. Hunt added, "Mill Film

has a healthy supply of digital effects, miniature construction and motion

control work for the start of the New Year. It has recently been confirmed

that we will be providing digital effects for the new Warner Bros. and

Castle Rock production PLUTO NASH, plus continuing with the ongoing work

for Natural Nylon. Mill Motion Control is currently working on 102

DALMATIANS."
