Launched in 2017 by veteran VFX artists with a passion for the 2D and 3D art form and technology, Vancouver BC’s Animism has grown into a full-service visual effects studio that’s known for its passion for storytelling, innovative approaches, robust infrastructure, award-winning creature work, and fostering an artist-friendly environment where their voices play a critical role in decision-making.
At the core of Animism’s vision is a commitment to empowering artists, whilst simultaneously delivering excellence to its clients - which include the likes of Apple, MGM, Netflix, The History Channel, Starz, and Amazon Prime. Animism’s pixels can be seen on the Golden Globe nominated, The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell, the Chucky reboot, Child’s Play, with Aubrey Plaza and Mark Hamill, Netflix creature show The Order, History’s Project Blue Book, and many other projects.
