LONDON - MotionFX has expanded its digital film production and digital intermediate operations with the purchase of leading edge equipment covering every stage of the production process from scene to screen.

The new equipment includes a second Quantel iQ DI system, several Eyeon Digital Fusion vfx workstations, two Thomson Viper FilmStream digital cinematography cameras twinned with two additional D.Mag uncompressed field disk recorders from S.two Corp., and a 2K digital screening facility for client-attended viewing, grading and editing sessions.

"The iQ and Viper combination has proven to be ideal for scene-to-screen digital film work, and our clients have benefited from the cost effective, streamlined high resolution workflow that we have been able to offer," says John O'Quigley, MotionFX director of operations. "The major expansion that we are undertaking has been driven directly by its success, and will enable us to meet the much-increased demand that we have been experiencing, especially from the independent film sector."

In a further announcement, Justin Lanchbury, former head of sales for camera rental company VMI, has joined MotionFX as group sales manager with responsibility for promoting all the companies within the MFX Group.

MotionFX is part of the MFX group of companies, which also includes Motion Control Cameras, MFX Digital, MFX Sweden and Marina Studios.
