DNEG signs new multiyear visual effects services agreement with streaming giant Netflix.
We’re pleased to announce that DNEG has signed a new multiyear agreement to expand its provision of visual effects and virtual production services for Netflix series and feature programming through 2025.
The non-exclusive agreement aligns DNEG’s scale and global footprint with Netflix’s diverse programming slate. As part of the agreement, we will build upon our existing award-winning work for Netflix and significantly expand our premium VFX services for the streamer across domestic and international markets.
“Netflix is the leader in the field of streaming content, and DNEG is at the forefront of VFX and virtual production services. This agreement is transformative for DNEG and creates the opportunity for further expansion of our global scale and further investment in DNEG’s industry-leading technology,” said Namit Malhotra, DNEG Chairman and CEO. “The signing of this multiyear agreement reflects the success of our partnership with Netflix to-date and validates DNEG’s strategic direction and worldwide growth initiatives.”
DNEG is already working with Netflix on a number of projects, including the highly anticipated Stranger Things Season 4; Rian Johnson’s Knives Out 2; fantasy action-dramas The School for Good and Evil and Avatar: The Last Airbender; origin story The Witcher: Blood Origin; and upcoming fantasy comedy-adventure Slumberland for director Francis Lawrence.
