Everyone at DNEG is an Oscar winner.

Collaboration is key

We first opened our doors twenty years ago. Founded by a small group of passionate and talented industry professionals, including Peter Chiang, Matt Holben, Alex Hope and Paul Franklin, DNEG has grown from a small studio in London to nine facilities in four countries across the globe.

In the course of working on hundreds of movies we’ve developed close, collaborative working relationships with leading directors that we work hard to foster and maintain.

An Award Winning Studio

We are always honoured when our work is acknowledged by the industry. In the last few years our talented artists have received 5 Academy Awards, 5 BAFTA Awards and 10 Visual Effects Society Awards, and we salute both the winners and the teams behind them.

DNEG UK Pay Gap Report 2018

We continue to work towards being an inclusive and diverse organisation and we are dedicated to building on our commitments in relation to this. Our mean gender pay gap in the UK for 2018 is 23%, which is due to more men than women occupying senior roles. We are taking positive action to close the gap by encouraging more women to consider jobs in VFX, championing inclusion and diversity at an industry level and supporting career development within DNEG for women and men. DNEG pays men and women equally for the same or equivalent roles across the business, globally.
