Boutique "laboratory services" for the age of digital cinema.
Founded by a staff of Oscar winning visual effects supervisors and a team with a proven history of breaking new ground, Digital Sandbox is unique in its approach to visual effects.
We provide world class supervision and project management without the encumbrance of a traditional facility or process. We are a design firm first, then a partner in planning and contracting. As a company we work as a team, pooling our considerable knowledge and experience for the benefit of our clients.
Our senior staff supports your project and all of the work of the studio, functioning as either a dedicated "show supervisor" or as consultant and mentor to your team. No matter how storied an individual's experience, our model of sharing and brainstorming brings more to your production.
As architects and partners with your production, we solve your problems, rather than trying to sell you our facility or hardware. Our focus is on utilization of the best and most appropriate talent out there for a given project. We award or subcontract the project, choosing the most appropriate facilities for you and your work. We do contract limited work "in-house," when it provides the most cost effective, schedule effective, or creatively appropriate solution.
Our mastering and digital HUB technology works as the central evaluation platform for the visual effects work. Strong imaging experience and a history with multiple effects vendors, studios and labs has taught us the importance of "what you see is what you get." The digital HUB provides a solid foundation for evaluation, freeing us to create with confidence.
