DNEG is in the midst of increasing its Canada-based VFX and animation operations and talent pool to meet surging worldwide multiplatform demand for its award-winning VFX, animation and leading-edge virtual production services.

The company remains on track to hire 200 employees for its Toronto studio in year one, including many new technology positions, and is planning to scale the studio even further in year two in response to demand from clients for its premium VFX and animation services. The company has embraced a flexible, hybrid in-office workforce approach to address ongoing COVID-19 precautions and to maximize the company’s appeal in securing the premier talent in the competitive VFX and animation labor marketplaces.

Fresh off another year of prestigious industry honors and recognition for its work at the Academy Awards®, the BAFTAs and the Visual Effects Society (VES), DNEG also reported ongoing progress in its Canadian hiring efforts, with now more than 1,500 employed nationwide. Current headcount in Canada now includes approximately 850 in Montreal and 520 in Vancouver, which includes the company’s new DNEG Animation location in Vancouver, and its ReDefine brand, which has employees in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.

“I am thrilled with the progress DNEG has made over the past six months in establishing a strong presence in Ontario, with exciting career opportunities in visual effects work for film and episodic projects, feature animation, and technology,” said General Manager, Gavin Graham. “The welcome we have received from local trade associations, Toronto Mayor John Tory and his team, and of course the incredible talent pool in Toronto, has been overwhelming.”
