Axis

Axis Studios that deals with both animation and VFX has officially launched its new location in Hoxton, London. It is located in a custom-built boutique space in the neighbouring London’s major tech and creative Old Street hub.

The said unit will provide greater exposure for Axis Animation, Flaunt Productions and axisVFX across the U.K. capital.

Acting as a branch of the Axis Studios HQ in Glasgow, Scotland, the London studio will house 10 to 15 per cent of Axis Studios’ 200-strong workforce.

The London studio will enable clients and creatives of Axis Studios to collaborate from the U.K. capital delivering complex productions of any volume with the backing, experience and depth of the Axis Studios team across its other Bristol and Glasgow locations.

Upcoming work at the London studio includes Netflix/E4’s Kiss Me First and SyFy’s Happy!

Said Paul Schleicher, executive producer at Axis Studios, “The London studio is a natural evolution for Axis Studios, it gives us greater access to new and existing clients and of course some of the very best talent in the world.”

Axis Studios is based in the U.K. with a global clientele. It boasts of one of the largest CGI production staffs in the U.K. and is on course to triple turnover to $19.9 million between 2015 and 2018.

The recent works of the studio include the Emmy Award-winning Lost In Oz for Amazon Studios, the Royal Television Society Award-nominated visual effects for the BBC’s Doctor Who and the Royal Television Society Award-winning Dawn of War III for Sega.
