    CIS Hollywood

    Founded Year: 1984
    CIS Visual Effects Group is an award winning international visual effects entity with facilities in Hollywood and Vancouver. The company services high-end feature film, television, commercial and gaming clients in the global marketplace.

    CIS Hollywood, founded in 1984, is one of the industry's most respected visual effects facilities. In early 2008, the company launched CIS Vancouver. With its boutique accessibility, the company has the capacity to service its clientele wherever production is situated.Today's visual effects industry is polarized between behemoth ?facilities and small outfits with limited abilities. Filmmakers who can't get attention at the large companies often face the headache of parceling out shots among countless small shops.

    Scalability and flexibility makes CIS a brilliant alternative, a mid-sized studio with the creative experience and ?technical acumen to offer a full range of services from 2D composites and rotoscoping to ?complex 3D tracking and CGI.

    CIS can expand its crew by tapping into a broad network of local freelance talent, bringing in the right people for the task at hand.The studio uses the most efficient technology available. The hardware and software is widely understood by our pool of freelance talent. When a visual effects assignment grows in size during a production, as it often does, CIS efficiently scales up to the project in a cost effective way.

    The CIS Visual Effects Group is a wholly-owned affiliate of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc.
