hybride star wars


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.

About Hybride
Hybride Technologies, a division of Ubisoft, is a Quebec-based company that specializes in delivering spectacular visual effects for the film and television industry worldwide.

Among some of its most memorable contributions to the film industry are several international mega-productions including Sin City, 300, Avatar, The Hunger Games and, more recently, Tomorrowland, Jurassic World, and Star Wars: The force Awakens.

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.”

dreamworks arches

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.

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.)

Star Wars Arcade


Ever since I first watched Star Wars in 1977 I’ve wanted to be part of that wonderful and mysterious galaxy far far away.  In the beginning my Kenner Star Wars figures helped me with that craving but it wasn’t until I was on a British holiday camp in the early eighties did I realise there was another form of entertainment that could overload your senses and place you right in the middle of the Death Star attack.  Of course that medium was video gaming and it all started with the Star Wars Arcade machine.

I was at a Pontins or Butlins holiday park in the early eighties and in the small arcade room that they had, were the usual array of pinball machines, fruit machines and the odd video games machine.  Defender, Space Invaders and Galaxian were the standard for those days.  But something caught my eye or rather my ears.  I could hear the familiar Star Wars theme being played.  I scanned the room eagerly, trying to determine where it was coming from and then I saw it!  There in the middle of the room was this thing of beauty.  A sit down Star Wars video game complete with yoke controls, stereo sound and wonderful artwork plastered all around the machine.  I immediately sat inside.  It felt good.  The outside noise seemed to disappear as the speakers behind you played a rendition of the classic John Williams score.

You assumed the role of Red Five in his X-Wing.  Your mission was simple.  Destroy the Death Star.  I knew then I was going to be spending quite a bit of money on this piece of art.  I looked at the
names scrolling up displaying the highest scores.  I was determined to get my name or at least my initials on ‘Princess Leia’s Rebel Force’ hall of fame.  The speakers blasted out the music and even quotes from the movie.  As I placed my ten pence into the machine I heard Luke say “Red five standing by.”  I had goose bumps.

Coin after coin disappeared into the machine.  Slowly but surely I got better.  Fending off waves of Tie-Fighters, blasting towers on the surface of the Death Star and eventually powering my way through the trench run leading to my opportunity to destroy this huge battle station.  Ben would remind me to use the Force and in fact if you could get through the trench run without blasting anything except the exhaust port you would get a bonus for using the Force.  I always tried this and for a brief moment I actually thought I was strong with the Force.

Some people would stop and watch as I delivered a bitter pill to the Empire.  It felt good.  I felt part of the universe and was making a difference.  Never have I been so immersed in a Star Wars environment outside of watching the movies.  You started the game with nine shields and every time you were hit by a firing Tie-Fighter or hit a tower you would lose a shield.  R2-D2 was with you and
would scream when shields were getting low.  “R2 try and increase the power” could be heard over the action and the familiar John Williams music.  Once you destroyed the Death Star you would start all over again with difficulty increasing every time but not before you witnessed a spectacular explosion of white circles on the screen representing the destruction of the Death Star and Han Solo screaming “great shot kid that was one in a million.”  Ben would chip in too and tell you “the Force will be with you, always.”  It felt good.

Eventually I got my name on the top of the list.  RJW was displayed proudly and stayed there for the rest of the day until they switched the machine off.  Never mind, I would start all over again tomorrow.  I spent a lot of money that week on that video game.  Getting into a lot of trouble with my parents for wasting all my pocket-money on this fine machine.  Day after day while on the holiday camp I would wait for the arcade room to open, arm myself with ten pence pieces and head over to face my mission.

The Atari Star Wars arcade game was released in 1983 and was my first encounter with Star Wars video games but certainly wasn’t my last.  It opened the door to the start of my gaming addiction.  It showed how good a video game could be, especially a Star Wars one.  I think throughout the years from the eighties to modern time I have played every Star Wars game that has been released.  Some, captured the magic of the movies while some have sunken quicker than an X-Wing in a swamp.  But it was the Star Wars Arcade machine that first opened my eyes to the wonders of Star Wars video games.  It was frantic, action packed and felt authentic to Star Wars.  The graphics were something called vector graphics which basically meant line graphics and geometric shapes to represent Tie-Fighters and the Death Star.  It worked beautifully and even to this day I don’t think it looks that bad.


I’m not alone either.  Some well-known people are fans of the Atari Star Wars Arcade game and one famous movie director in particular, Steven Spielberg.  During a regular visit to Lucasfilm in the early eighties he set his eyes on the Star Wars arcade machine that just happened to be taking residence.  Little did Spielberg know that the machine that was at Lucasfilm was being used and studied by Peter Langston (Ball Blazer and Rescue on Fractalus!) who was there for Lucasfilm Games (later to be Lucasarts.)

Lucasfilm actually had little involvement in the Atari arcade machine but the machine was shipped to them for reference and for Langston to study.  After studying the manual he discovered a switch that would convert the game into debug mode and allow all sorts of options to be applied.  One in particular was the option to freeze the game and using the fire button you could advance the scene one frame at a time and still move the cursor on-screen and blast away those Tie-Fighters.  Langston loved this feature and added the option to the cockpit and labelled it “The Force.”

A few years later Spielberg once again was visiting Lucasfilm and asked if he could borrow the game while filming Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom to help with the quiet periods.  Well of course Spielberg fell in love with the machine and decided to order one for himself.  When the game arrived at his home he was immediately on the phone to Atari, the makers of the game asking where the “Force” button was.  Atari had to explain to the director that this feature wasn’t part of the original game.

George Lucas tries out the sit down version of the Star Wars Arcade machine.
Other fans also fell in love with the arcade machine.  Singer and huge Star Wars fan, Darren Hayes is, like Spielberg also lucky enough to own a Star Wars Arcade machine and I recently asked him what he finds so special about it:

The sit down Atari Star Wars Arcade machine was the first arcade game I ever played, at TimeZone in Brisbane City in 1982.  It was a thing of legend and remained there a decade later even when much more advanced technology took over the old vector games.  It was just a classic experience so close to the feeling of flying an X Wing that fans kept it around.
Almost 30 years later I have a stand up version of the game, a mint condition cabinet version that has moved with me all around the world.  It is still the one treasure in my life I’d try to carry on my back in a fire!  It’s also a guaranteed way to make visitor’s mouths drop open in awe.  It’s amazing.
Naturally when I left the holiday camp I wanted to continue my X-Wing adventures.  Inevitably due to the success of the arcade version there were numerous home conversions of the arcade game too.  Parker Brothers brought out a conversion for the Atari 2600 and other 8-bit consoles.  Obviously they weren’t a patch on the original but it was incredible to be able to play this classic game in your own home.  Every console or home computer format that came along seemed to have a conversion of the game.  Spectrum, C64, Amiga, Atari ST and others.  Even now there is a modern version loosely based on the original for mobile devices called Star Wars: Trench Run.

Atari 2600 version. Obviously the graphics were more basic than the original
When I look back at my Star Wars memories, the original Star Wars arcade game is right up there with my other Star Wars memories as a kid.  Watching Star Wars for the first time, playing with my Kenner figures and destroying the Death Star for the first time at a holiday camp somewhere in the UK.  If I ever see an original Star Wars arcade machine these days I cannot walk past without having a go and defeating the Empire one last time.

“Red Five standing by.”

ilm rogue one

Industrial Light & Magic have posted a shared reaction video to the epic Star Wars Rogue One trailer.  Here's what they had to say:

At ILM we know how awesome Star Wars fans are but when John Knoll saw all of the incredible fan reaction videos to the Rogue One trailer he felt he had to share them with the crew. So what did we do? We made our own reaction video to the reaction videos of course.

Thanks to all of the fans out there who share their passion for Star Wars online.

Clara Oswald ended her time in the TARDIS at the end of series nine of Doctor Who (with the departure of Jenna Coleman), and we all know the Doctor doesn't do well on his own (Time Lord Victorious, anyone?). Time to find a new companion for him to share his adventures in time and space... and perhaps keep him a bit grounded. Or not?

Introducing the Doctor's new companion.... 



So? What do you think? It'll be a while before we get to see more of the Doctor and Bill in action, but at least we've got something to chew on for the time being, right?



Welcome aboard, Pearl! Can't wait to get to know you better.

trolls, dreamworks animation,

Zooey Deschanel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, Quvenzhané Wallis and John Cleese Join the October 21st Release

The party continues to grow as DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls adds Zooey Deschanel (New Girl, (500) Days of Summer), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (How to Train Your Dragon, Neighbors), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent, Arrested Development), Christine Baranski (The Good Wife, Into the Woods), Quvenzhan√© Wallis (Annie, Beasts of the Southern Wild) and John Cleese (Shrek Forever After, A Fish Called Wanda) to an already star-studded cast, led by Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake. “Our cast is quite literally bursting with talent,” said Director Mike Mitchell. This mix of comedic and musical star-power is every filmmaker’s dream.”
From director Mike Mitchell (Director, Shrek Forever After, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water), co-director Walt Dohrn (Head of Story, Shrek Forever After) and produced by Gina Shay (Producer, Shrek Forever After), comes a smart, funny and irreverent animated comedy, DreamWorks’ Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colourful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comedically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.
Trolls features original music from Justin Timberlake and soon-to-be-classic mash-ups of songs from popular artists and, with the addition of this new talent, the cast now includes Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Russell Brand, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Gwen Stefani and many more. DreamWorks' Trolls is a fresh, broad comedy filled with music, heart and hair-raising adventures. In October of 2016, nothing can prepare you for our new Troll world.
“We’re fortunate to work with such an incredible group of artists,” said Co-Director Walt Dohrn. “We can’t wait to share the colourful, magical Trolls universe with fans around the world.”
