Animal Logic today announced that it has finalised a deal to buy the business assets of Sydney-based studio Fuel VFX which recently went into voluntary administration.
Animal Logic has formed a new company, called Animal Logic Fuel, which will trade as Fuel VFX, based in Newtown, Sydney. The five original founders of Fuel VFX – Jason Bath, Paul Butterworth, Andrew Hellen, Simon Maddison and Dave Morley – will remain in-situ and drive all aspects of the new business.
Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian said: “Fuel VFX represents some of Australia’s best design and visual effects talent and capabilities. Highly regarded around the world for its advertising and film VFX work, it is a name with a great pedigree and a solid future. I am excited to welcome it into the Animal Logic family.”
Paul Butterworth, VFX Supervisor and Art Director said: “This is an exciting development for our clients: the talent and expertise of both companies will be combined under the Fuel VFX banner to create one of Australia’s most creative and skillful design and effects teams for advertising and short form design and post production.”
Animal Logic and Fuel VFX confirmed that both companies will operate their own film VFX divisions retaining distinct identities and individual client relationships.
