Image Engine was formed in 1995 in anticipation of the growing strength of the postproduction market in Vancouver.
The founding partners (Greg Holmes, Robin Hackl and Christopher Mossman) began with a simple vision to produce stunning work for the demanding producers and directors who were increasingly flocking to Vancouver as a location for high-end visual effects.
With numerous Emmy, Gemini and Visual Effects Society nominations under its belt, Image Engine went on to seize the growing opportunities in feature film visual effects work.
The success of the film division led to its architects Peter Muyzers and Shawn Walsh being made partners in the business. They remain a driving force building Image Engine into an industry leading feature film visual effects facility, culminating in 2010 with the Academy Award® nomination for District 9.
From its first production Slither through to the recent high profile productions including The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, District 9, 2012, Watchmen, Law Abiding Citizen, Orphan and The Losers, Image Engine have built up a notable roster of credits.
Image Engine is a privately owned and run company, based in Vancouver, BC.
