About MPC

At MPC (The Moving Picture Company) we serve the international movie industry by bringing the vision of some of the world’s most creative film makers to stunning life. Increasingly that means, getting involved at every stage of the creative process, from collaborating on the initial concept art to delivering the final compositing. Recently we have also started offering advice on stereo 3D workflow.

We work from London, California, Vancouver, Bangalore and New York, and all our locations are fully networked so that artists can share work from any of them. Review sessions are held via video conferencing.

Our business is all about our people and the work we do is only ever as good as the talent we employ. That’s why we’re constantly on the hunt for dynamic and creative individuals to join our community.
