The VFX and animation company expands upon its presence in the UK, Bulgaria, and across North America and India in response to global clients’ demands for creative services.
The DNEG Group’s ReDefine visual effects (VFX) and animation company is expanding to Barcelona, Spain, joining its other European studios in London, UK, and Sofia, Bulgaria, as well as its broader network in North America and India. The VFX/animation house plans to build a substantial presence in Barcelona, catering to its global clients’ demands for creative services. The new location officially opens in September.
“I am thrilled to announce our latest ReDefine studio in the beautiful city of Barcelona,” ReDefine managing director Rohan Desai. “Spain’s film and television industry is booming, and there is a wealth of talent in the country that I hope will be as excited about our new studio as I am. Jordi, Dani, and Patric each have impressive experience and credentials, and I am delighted that they will be heading up Barcelona, the twelfth studio in our global network.”
ReDefine has recently delivered VFX work on projects including Obi-Wan Kenobi (Disney+), The Essex Serpent (Apple TV+), Hustle (Netflix), and Halo (Paramount+). Helmed by a team of industry veterans, Jordi Cardus (Avengers: Endgame, Ready Player One) and Daniel Buhigas (John Wick 3: Parabellum, A Monster Calls) will serve as heads of the studio with Patric Roos (Avengers: Infinity War, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2) on board as creative director and VFX supervisor.
“Dani and I have spent our careers working in visual effects companies all over the world, so to set up a brand-new studio in our hometown of Barcelona is incredibly exciting to us,” said Cardus.
Buhigas added, “Spain is fast becoming a key hub for international productions, and we look forward to our studio working on both local projects and international shows as part of ReDefine’s global network.”
“We have some fantastic career opportunities for talented individuals with a passion for storytelling to come and contribute to some amazing new shows,” concluded Roos. “There is a great pool of talent in Spain, and we want to provide the opportunity for artists to come and work as part of our global team on some exciting and high-profile projects – all from the incredible city of Barcelona.”
