Operating remotely throughout 2021, the Mumbai team have already been working on high-profile productions including The Wheel of Time, Foundation, and Star Trek: Picard. The facility will be based in the Western Suburbs when it opens in 2022.
“In the same way that our studio will culturally be an extension of the other Outpost studios globally, our Mumbai team will also be offering the same end-to-end services as the other studios,” said Thakur.
“In time, we will have the capability to cover the full gamut of VFX with our own 3D departments and CG artists.”
Gez Hixson, COO, said: “Entering any new region is tough – you have to find leaders that exude the beliefs and ways of working that we’ve adopted throughout Outpost. In Sam we have a leader that not only lives and breathes putting artists first but also has exemplary local knowledge of the market and a proven track record of delivering at the highest level.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Sam on board and I’m looking forward to bringing Outpost’s positive approach to the region.”
The opening of the Mumbai facility arrives during a period of sustained growth for Outpost following expansion into Los Angeles in early 2021 and the recent opening of a London facility.
