A collective of artistic visionaries, Toronto-based creative studio WeFX delivers visual effects (VFX) ranging from high-end character animation and complex environment work to invisible VFX and virtual production for feature films and episodic television series. Founded by industry veterans Mo Ghorbankarimi and Pouya Badkoobeh in July 2020, the studio experienced meteoric growth from its outset and expects to continue an upward trajectory. The second season of futuristic drama SEE on Apple TV+ marks one of the studio’s first projects, with several other high profile feature films and episodics to roll out through 2021 and beyond. To ensure the necessary computing resources for success, WeFX relies on a scalable hybrid infrastructure built on Amazon Web Services (AWS). A team of cloud specialists at IMT Cloud Services led the integration and continue to make adjustments based on the studio’s needs.
“IMT Cloud Services helped us design studio infrastructure that is modern and adaptable. Their team helped us build a platform that can easily expand to take advantage of the scalability of the cloud and AWS, which is important because our project flow and resource demands can be unpredictable,” said WeFX Head of Technology Laurence Cymet.
