"Stargate Digital, the visual effects studio based in Pasadena, Californa, has opened a new facility, Stargate Digital UK, at London's historic Pinewood Studios.
The new high-speed, deep storage digital facility is modeled after Stargate's growing and groundbreaking Los Angeles and Vancouver studios. All three studios will be linked via a state-of-the art high-speed, high-resolution digital network and will be able to quickly and efficiently work on projects and pool talent.
The U.K. arm already is working on the visual effects for WHITE NOISE, a feature film starring Michael Keaton and directed by Geoffrey Sax. Principal photography was completed in Vancouver in October 2003. Stargate Digital visual effects supervisor Jennifer Eachren oversaw the on-set VFX in Vancouver, including design and pre-visualization. Digital visual effects will be finished in London under the direction of visual effects supervisor Simon Giles. "
