Mill TV to close following vfx downturn

"The Mill is proposing to close its award-winning vfx department Mill TV with the possible loss of 25 jobs. The move will see the departure of senior figures such as Mill TVís managing director and executive producer Will Cohen.

The Mill CEO Robin Shenfield said that Mill TV, which had successfully built itself a reputation for vfx on shows such as Doctor Who and Merlin, had weathered losses in 2012 and those losses had accelerated in the first quarter of 2013.

The facility will now focus primarily on its commercials business.

The department had suffered a number of setbacks such as failing to join the roster on Starz/BBC production of DaVinciís Demons and the cancellation of Skyís Sinbad sequel.

Going forward, broadcasters are commissioning less high end vfx driven drama series this year, with Merlin discontinued and the BBC not commissioning a Doctor Who series this year. "
