We are delighted to announce our Vancouver facility will be opening shortly to work on a range of projects including Through the Looking Glass for Walt Disney Pictures.
Said CEO Matt Holben “Vancouver is a hub of creative talent and we want to make sure that the working environment we create matches the same standards we’ve achieved in London and Singapore. Our focus is to develop a state of the art, purpose built facility producing cutting edge visual effects both as a stand alone VFX House and in tandem with London and Singapore.”
The DNEG Vancouver crew will comprise of the very best local talent alongside a core team from DNEG London. We are happy to confirm as first appointment, Steve Garrad (a long time DNEG friend and colleague) as Double Negative Vancouver’s Executive Producer.

He subsequently moved onto the role of VFX Executive Producer at Vancouver’s Image Engine Design where he helped secure and deliver shows for Universal, Lionsgate, Dark Castle, Film 44 and Warner Bros.
A long term respected colleague and friend of Double Negative, Steve was the obvious and only choice when it came to looking for an Executive Producer for our brand new Canadian facility Double Negative Vancouver.
