Technicolor’s MPC Launches New VFX Division for Streaming, Episodic Content (MESA)

Technicolor subsidiary MPC Film has launched a new, London-based episodic visual effects division, further expanding on Technicolor’s portfolio of film and episodic VFX studios, Mill Film, Mr. X and Mikros.

MPC, which specializes in photoreal VFX and animation work, will offer episodic directors and producers access to the technology and talent behind recent films including “The Lion King,” “Detective Pikachu,” “1917” and “Godzilla: King of The Monsters.”

The MPC Episodic division will be headed by MD Thomas Williams, previously COO for MPC Film, as well as executive VFX supervisor Pete Jopling (“The Bourne Legacy,” “Captain America: Civil War”), head of creative Gurel Mehmet (“The Witcher,” “Avengers: Endgame”) and senior producer Therese Zambra (“Mars,” “Frontline”).

“The episodic landscape has changed at an extraordinary pace, and now feels like the perfect time to launch this exciting new division,” Williams said. “MPC has been behind some of the most awe-inspiring film and commercials work of the last decade and is well positioned to bring its phenomenal expertise to the episodic community.”
