Jellyfish Pictures Expands VFX Operations to Toronto

Canadian move supports regional client demand and offers access to local talent, coming on the heels of company’s 2023 Mumbai studio launch.

The award-winning VFX and animation studio Jellyfish Pictures announced its expansion into Canada, initially launching operations in Toronto, extending a period of rapid growth that saw the launch of a Mumbai, India facility in 2023. Setting up a Canadian base supports regional client demand and gives the studio access to local talent.

“I am thrilled for us to expand our VFX division into Canada,” said managing director of VFX Phil Greenlow. “Jellyfish Pictures is powered by a global community of amazing artists. Since some of the world’s finest VFX talent is concentrated in Toronto, it’s the obvious next stop on our international road map. Coupled with the recent influx of production activity in Ontario, we can’t wait for our team to create compelling visual effects in this vibrant location.”

“It’s an exciting time for Jellyfish Pictures as we continue to grow our talented team of creatives and further expand our operations globally,” added CEO David Patton. “We opened our 200-seat Mumbai studio at the end of last year and believe now is the right time for us to establish a strong presence in the Canadian market.”

Jellyfish Pictures’ recent VFX credits include critically acclaimed feature films The Creator and Asteroid City. Its television projects include The Gentlemen, Constellation, and the Oscar-winning live-action short The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. Upcoming 2024 projects include Ellen Kuras’ Lee, starring Kate Winslet, Netflix’s Kaos, and the fantasy adventure series Nautilus.
