Prime Focus began in Mumbai over 15 years ago under the leadership of a young start-up minded teen excited to draw on the talent of his friends and his relationships as a member of a third generation Bollywood filmmaking family. Beginning as a commercial post-production facility providing top-tier technology solutions to clients, the business quickly outgrew the family garage to become a multi-location, industry-leading, end-to-end digital services provider for Bollywood. With the desire to grow the company's services potential as its primary mission, Prime Focus headed west in 2007 - 2008, acquiring broadcast, film post-production and visual effects companies in London, Los Angeles, Vancouver and New York.
In a strategic effort to concentrate the creative services divisions into one globally integrated whole, Prime Focus World was officially formed in 2011. Uniting the Visual Effects, 3D Conversion and Animation divisions under the Prime Focus World banner created a globally integrated pipeline and access to a world of talent. Prime Focus World and its sister companies in the Prime Focus Group have grown to become an international team of over 4,500 professionals across globe.
Prime Focus World's people and locations have diverse experience and backgrounds, yet all are united in creating forward-thinking service models for our clients, from Hollywood to Bollywood and everywhere in between. Whether we're providing visual effects or production service solutions through Prime Focus World, or partnering with our sister company Prime Focus Technologies to deliver multi-platform content management infrastructures and cloud-based services, we pride ourselves on exceeding partner expectations at every opportunity.
And while technology, intelligent financial design and creative digital solutions are our expertise, at Prime Focus World our ‘prime focus’ is on people - our people, who collaborate globally to create pioneering solutions, ground-breaking visions and exciting new opportunities for the people we partner with everyday.
At Prime Focus, you'll never hear us question whether it is possible... We'll simply collectively ask... What do you want to create?
