Technicolor and our family of creative studios are behind some of the world’s most memorable creatures and animals.
Photoreal creature work is one of the fastest-growing segments in film, episodic and commercial production. Life-like creatures and animals have an uncanny ability to connect with audiences on an emotional level – and they stay in our hearts and minds forever. From the lovable Baloo in The Jungle Book to the Samsung Ostrich and the ‘so-real-we-tricked-PETA-lion' in Lemony Snickets, Technicolor and our family of creative studios is the place where creatures come to life.
Technicolor is, at our core, a technology company. Innovation and creation is what we do. It’s the culmination of hundreds of artist years and technologist years – of changing the art of storytelling through the advancement of tools and technology. Throughout the years, we have custom built workflow pipelines, developed proprietary technologies, and made huge advancements in Virtual Production. And we don’t stop there, as we are always building upon, enhancing, and improving what’s come before. This is why we are uniquely positioned to provide the very best creatures across feature films, episodic television, animation, games, advertising – and on into VR and experiential. It’s what keeps us and our brands on the absolute cutting edge of technology – and our expertise and love of this medium shows in our award-winning creatures spanning all types of storytelling.

MPC Film and MR.X, the powerhouses behind such projects as The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Penny Dreadful, The Shape of Water and the upcoming The Lion King, continue to bring us creatures that make us laugh, cry and shudder in terror. The Mill, MPC and Mikros tickle us with Chantix Slow Turkey, Marmots, and the spunky, adorable ram in Volkswagen’s Born Confident.
