Visual effects company Pixomondo has opened its twelfth facility in Baton Rouge Louisiana. The announcement comes on the heels of the Academy Award win by Pixomondo’s visual effects supervisor Ben Grossmann and digital effects supervisor Alex Henning for their work on Hugo. “Opening an office in Baton Rouge fits perfectly with our overall company vision. Louisiana offers a very generous production tax rebate that we can pass on to our clients to bolster our project load as well as our growing teams in Los Angeles London and Germany not to mention China and Canada ” says Thilo Kuther founder Pixomondo. “Baton Rouge is a beautiful city with a wealth of resources. We’ve already connected with the Louisiana State University science department to help set up remote render farms and virtualization with our other studios.” Pixomondo plans to open a facility with between 50-70 staff servicing film television and commercial productions shooting both in Louisiana and around the world as part of the company’s worldwide network. Louisiana has been offering a generous 30-35 percent tax incentive for film and television production since 2002 and has lured many projects as a result. Several recent productions shot in the state include Battleship the Twilight series Battle LA Green Lantern and many others. The Pixomondo facility will open at Celtic Media Centre adjacent to the Raleigh Studios Louisiana outpost in May. Pixomondo http://www.pixomondo.com
