22 April, 2008 – Manchester digital company Red Vision wins another deal
Red Vision, based in Manchester, has signed a deal with an Austrailian company to create a studio in cyberspace. The bafta award winning company, famous for their computer graphics and visual effects, have teamed up with ACDI – The Austrailian Centre for Digital Innovation, to create Virtual Super Studio International.
The collaboration aims to create a new facility which will allow both companies to share their workloads despite being on the opposite sides of the world. Earlier this month, Red Vision – which is behind ITV1′s new satirical series Headcases – bought its TV division back, less than two years after it was sold to Inspired Gaming Group for around £20m.
Managing director David Mousley said: "We have 65 designers working for us here in Manchester, but this new deal will provide us with access to a further 55 designers who work for ACDI.
"This will mean that both organisations are able to take on bigger projects and production will become a 24-hour-a-day process."
