METHOD STUDIOS

Method houses a collective of over 400 animation and VFX artists in Melbourne and Sydney who are passionate about producing the best impact on screen – from the production of high quality, fast-turnaround pre-visualisation through to a flawless final shot or sequence. The studio engages in onset supervision, look development, pre and post vis, as well as the finishing of shots. Whilst  Method’s highly-regarded reputation has been built around its 3D and character animation work, the studio also produces outstanding results in 2D VFX, matte painting, compositing, FX animation and on-set supervision for the film and television industries. Over 10 years of remote collaboration with the major Hollywood studios has taught the studio to be flexible, nimble and adaptable with outstanding results on more than 100 of our most loved films including Mad Max: Fury Road, Ted and Ted 2, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Charlotte’s Web, Games of Thrones Season 6 and 7, John Wick Chapter 2 and most recently Jumanji : Welcome to the Jungle.
