Sony Pictures Imageworks Moving to Vancouver

May 30, 2014 07:52 | By

In another major blow to California’s beleaguered visual effects industry, Sony Pictures Imageworks announced that it will relocate its head office from Culver City, Calif. to Vancouver next year, moving into a new 74,000-square-foot headquarters that will accommodate up to 700 employees.

The company’s California office currently employs about 270 workers. It isn’t clear how many of them will remain, but the company plans to keep a small operation running in Culver City to service local clients.

Imageworks recently delivered visual effects for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Edge of Tomorrow.
