Leading visual effects (VFX) and animation studio DNEG is expanding its Canada-based VFX and animation operations and talent pool.
Founded in London in 1988, DNEG is the Academy Award nominated VFX studio behind films like Ex Machina, Inception Interstellar, and Tenet.
DNEG is planning a new studio in Toronto that will initially employ up to 200, including many new technology positions, as well as expanding its existing Vancouver and Montreal offices, and adding a new studio for its Feature Animation division in Vancouver.

DNEG will be creating up to 300 new roles across its Vancouver and Montreal offices, including up to 100 new positions in Vancouver for its Feature Animation team, to support their upcoming slate of animation projects.
Located in False Creek, DNEG’s Vancouver studio was the company’s first in North America.
“As DNEG continues to build upon its award-winning legacy, we are further investing in Canada by creating up to 200 new jobs in the Greater Toronto Area with the opening of our fourth North American studio,” said DNEG Chairman and CEO Namit Malhotra.
Malhorta continued,”We are also continuing to build out our studios in Vancouver and Montreal to support our upcoming slate of VFX projects, and extending our highly successful Feature Animation team to Vancouver as they move into production on five new animation projects. Growth in our Canadian talent and capabilities will help us strategically align with the demands of the entertainment industry and seize upon our new growth initiatives and content creation opportunities.”
