SANTA MONICA — Bi-coastal production company Stardust (www.stardust.tv) has moved its West Coast office into a new 8,000-square-foot space in Santa Monica. The studio is set up for both animation and production to accommodate Stardust's expanding team of directors, animators, producers and designers.
New equipment at the studio includes two render farms, multiple edit suites and an Autodesk Flame suite. The facility has designated areas for live-action production, design, animation and effects, as well as client workspace.
"The move was a no brainer for us," notes Jake Banks, founder and executive creative director of Stardust. "We moved into a larger space that fits our vibe and size perfectly. With multiple jobs out of Santa Monica, New York and Paris, our needs have evolved and this new HQ fits the bill perfectly and has ample parking to boot."
Stardust recently added Paris-based collective UFO to its directorial roster. The company is currently delivering projects for Citgo, BET, The Art Institute and Children's Hospital.
