Hybride strengthens its position on the visual effects market by announcing its partnership with special effects giant ILM

Founded in 1975 by George Lucas, ILM is the leading visual effects facility in the world, serving the motion picture, commercial production and attraction industries. ILM has created visual effects for over 300 feature films, including the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, as well as other blockbuster franchises such as Transformers, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jurassic Park, Avengers and Iron Man. The company currently has offices in San Francisco, Singapore, Vancouver and London.

The relationship between Hybride and ILM began in 2013 while working on Pacific Rim. Since then, in conjunction with ILM, Hybride has contributed visual effects on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Unbroken, Tomorrowland and Jurassic World. More recently, the studio was entrusted by ILM to craft seamless visual effects for several sequences for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which received an Oscar nomination for Best Visual Effects and won the British Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.


“Over these few years, we’ve developed a great connection with the team at ILM and it’s
exactly for that reason that they’ve decided to entrust Hybride as their partner in Quebec”, said Pierre Raymond, President and Head of Operations at Hybride. “This alliance is a huge vote of confidence that will allow us to consolidate our position in the VFX industry and inevitably strengthen our recruitment capacity. Hybride is extremely proud to partner up with the visual effects giant which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year”.

Founded in 1991, Hybride was the first digital visual effects company in Quebec. Since then, it has produced high-end feature film visual effects for several mega-productions and currently employs over 100 team members in its studio located in Piedmont, Quebec. In order to increase its production capacity to service the new alliance with ILM, Hybride has expanded its operations to Montreal with the opening of a new creative space located in the same building as Ubisoft on St-Laurent Street.

"In recent years, Montreal has become an international visual effects hub with a world-class talent base," said Pierre Raymond. "Having offices in Montreal instantly gives us access to additional resources. For Hybride, this represents an increased capacity to take on additional workloads all the while maintaining the level of quality for which Hybride is recognized,” added Raymond.

“In our search to collaborate with the industry’s best talent, Hybride has consistently risen to the top, proving time and again their ability to execute visual effects work for us at the highest level,” noted Gretchen Libby, ILM Executive in Charge, Global Studio. “ILM places a high value on innovation, creativity and technological expertise, as does Hybride. Today’s announcement is the result of this shared vision.’’

“It is the talent and ingenuity of our artists that have made Hybride into one of the most respected Canadian companies in Hollywood. The alliance with ILM will strengthen the relationship between both studios and will allow Hybride to continue its growth while also guaranteeing the studio’s participation on upcoming Hollywood blockbusters”, concluded Raymond.

IMAX is the closest thing we have right now to a fully immersive experience. It surrounds you with sound quality, the image quality, the scale of the image; it just enhances your whole movie-going experience incredibly.”
– Director, Joe Russo

To celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War IMAX provides a sneak peek at how directors Joe and Anthony Russo brought the movie to life in IMAX. This exciting video leaves fans on the edge of their seats with suspenseful scenes from the film along with commentary from Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan on what fans can expect when experiencing Captain America: Civil War in the immersive IMAX format. 

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo shot the major 17-minute battle sequence of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War with the new ALEXA IMAX® 65mm cameras. This marks the first film to use the new 2D digital cameras developed under the partnership between IMAX and ARRI. Only in IMAX® theatres will these sequences expand vertically to fill more of the screen, providing moviegoers with even greater scope and breathtaking image quality for a truly immersive experience.

Steven Spielberg is reportedly getting a nice payout after everyone's favourite company, Comcast buys Dreamworks.

The Jaws and E.T. director is in line for a payout of $187million after entertainment giant Comcast, which owns the likes of NBC and Universal Pictures, agreed to buy Dreamworks for $3.8billion.
Spielberg collected the cash haul because he still owns a five per cent stake in the animation studio he helped found in 1994, which has produced films such as Shrek and Kung Fu Panda.

The payout could have been a lot smaller, but stock in Dreamworks jumped 50 per cent in the 24 hours before the deal with Comcast was announced after it was rumored by the Wall Street Journal.

lego star wars freemaker adventures

Introducing new heroes and villains to the LEGO Star Wars universe, the animated television series "LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" will premiere MONDAY, JUNE 20 (10:00 a.m. EST) on Disney XD.  Set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, the action comedy series follows the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space. The series will also feature familiar characters and locations from the filmed Star Wars saga. 

During the series' premiere week, Disney XD will debut a new episode each day, beginning Monday, June 20 through Thursday, June 23. The first episode will also be available via Video on Demand (VOD) and the Disney XD app for users on tablets, phones, set top boxes and computers on Monday, June 20.

The series stars three Freemaker siblings who scour the galaxy for useful debris that they use to build new vehicles of their own design.  Rowan, the spunky Force-sensitive 12-year-old with a thirst for adventure, is voiced by newcomer Nicolas Cantu. His quick-witted older sister, Kordi, voiced by Vanessa Lengies ("Glee"), manages the family business and is the glue that holds the family together.  Ace pilot and charming rogue Zander, voiced by Eugene Byrd ("Arrow"), is the oldest brother and the family's self-proclaimed starship connoisseur. Lucasfilm's Matthew Wood voices R0-GR, also known as Roger, a refurbished battle droid from the Clone Wars adopted by the Freemaker family.

The humorous and action-packed tale of good versus evil begins when Rowan discovers the Kyber Saber, an ancient artifact with a powerful connection to the Force. Their world is turned upside down as they are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy.  Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers learn the true value of what it means to be a family.

"LEGO® Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" is a production of Wil Film, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm and is the first television series created in partnership with the LEGO Group, Disney and Lucasfilm. Developed for television by executive producers Bill Motz and Bob Roth ("Penguins of Madagascar"), Torsten Jacobson ("LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales") and Jill Wilfert ("The LEGOTM Movie") also serve as executive producers alongside producers Carrie Beck ("Star Wars Rebels"), Jason Cosler ("LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Avengers Reassembled!"), Jake Blais and John McCormack.

This is a rather clever Jaws 2 parody created in the Minecraft game.  Definitely worth a watch which a lot of Jaws fans would say is more than can be said for the sequel.  (I thought Jaws 2 was an okay film.  Don't ask me about 3 and 4 though.)
