Visual effects house Method Studios announced that is has formed a strategic alliance with previsualization company HALON Entertainment. Under the agreement, Method will collaborate with HALON to jointly provide previs and VFX services to customers, which will allow the two companies to share talent, technique and locations. Combined services will be available out of any of Method’s worldwide locations, including London and Vancouver.
Founded in 2003 by CEO and previsualization director Daniel Gregoire, HALON Entertainment is a full-service previs and postvis studio that enables filmmakers to visually explore their creative ideas throughout the production process.
“Nearly all VFX projects coming in the door at Method require some form of previs in their early stages and we have successfully collaborated with HALON many times over the past few years,” said Gabby Gourrier, SVP of global productions for Method Studios. “This new arrangement solidifies our working relationship and offers our clients direct access to HALON’s team of previs experts, who are well respected leaders in their field.”
“Together, with Method, we are excited to offer global services for streamlining creative projects that require integrated services,” said Gregoire. “It’s great to have a long time client like Method as an ally to this end.”
