Furious FX began soon after the close of Cinesite Hollywood in 2003, which left many who had worked there for nearly a decade wondering what was next. The industry was reaching a point where the prospect of starting a new facility seemed much more plausible, so a few of us more adventurous types figured the timing (given that our employer would no longer be doing business in town) couldn’t be more ideal.
Eighteen years and nearly 10,000 shots later, we are still here, … and keeping very busy with our most complex work to date!
Our team consists of long-time colleagues and industry veterans who are both exceedingly creative and uncompromisingly responsible. Surrounding ourselves with a crew of self-starters who take pride in their work, and are their own worst critics, has allowed us to produce an unprecedented volume of eye-popping visuals with a far more streamlined facility.
