Technicolor and “Grand Theft Auto” franchise creator Rockstar Games have teamed up to create a dedicated gaming unit, utilizing Technicolor’s game artists, animators and its technology infrastructure at its Bangalore, India, digital production studio.
Technicolor’s India arm has already worked on several Rockstar games, including Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3.
“This partnership reinforces Technicolor’s strong commitment and strategy to growing its art and animation business for the video game industry and we are proud to work with cutting-edge industry leaders like Rockstar Games,” said Tim Sarnoff, president of Technicolor Digital Productions.
Technicolor’s digital production team also produces CG animation for TV, commercials and other entertainment, and its clients also include DreamWorks Animation, Mattel, Nickelodeon, Sony Computer Entertainment America, Square Enix and Electronic Arts.
“Technicolor [was] a fantastic resource for us during the development of Max Payne 3,” said Jeronimo Barrera, VP of development at Rockstar Games. “We’re looking forward to building the partnership on future projects.”
