Visual Effects Facility Credits Include The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, Immortals, Jane Eyre, and Source Code
Los Angeles: Oct 12, 2011… Modus FX, one of Canada’s emerging leaders in visual effects, announced today that it has signed with International Creative Management (“ICM”), one of the world's largest talent and literary agencies. Based in Montreal, Modus FX is the first Canadian postproduction house to be included in the prestigious entertainment agency's roster. The partnership between ICM and Modus FX will provide Hollywood studios with easier access to Modus' capabilities for project development, VFX supervision, and postproduction.
Modus FX credits include the highly anticipated The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, which is set to release in November and stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner; Tarsem Singh’s Greek mythology Immortals, starring Mickey Rourke, Stephen Dorff, and Freida Pinto slated for release this fall; the sci-fi thriller Source Code starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan and Vera Famiga; and the adaptation of the BBC Films Jane Eyre starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender.
"Audience expectations for visual effects keep rising, so every new production faces a new challenge, even if they don't have a blockbuster budget," said Valerie Delahaye, who heads Modus' Los Angeles office. "Filmmakers and studios get a much better return on their postproduction dollars when they have a visual effects partner who can work with them during development. We help them to foresee technical issues before they happen, and guide them to elegant, artistic solutions."
International Creative Management (ICM) is one of the world's largest talent and literary agencies with offices in New York, Los Angeles, and London.
