Global Leader In 3D Conversion Comes To Chandigarh

Prime Focus, one of the world's largest entertainment services groups, has announced the launch of its new facility in Chandigarh, Northern India. This is the tenth Prime Focus facility in India.
The company also operates studios in Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Goa and Mumbai, in addition to international facilities in London, LA, New York, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
The 50,000 sq ft facility, which opened on December 25, 2010, will hold 3,000 artists and will be dedicated to working on global projects, utilising Prime Focus' global digital pipeline which connects India to North America and the UK.
Merzin Tavaria, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Director (India), Prime Focus, commented: "Our new facility in Chandigarh is a major expansion of our View-D 2D to stereo 3D conversion capacity. Prime Focus has always wanted to mark its presence in Northern India, considering its existing strong presence in Western and Southern India. Chandigarh is an ideal location due to its huge student population, many of whom are looking to establish a career in animation and VFX."
