The agreement will provide filmmakers worldwide with access to the expert talents and services both companies have been providing through their facilities.
It also allows both companies to manage their workflows more efficiently between MPI in Burbank, and Prime Focus' facilities spread over India, London, New York, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Los Angeles.
"Working with Prime Focus not only gives MPI a global footprint, it also allows both our companies to provide our clients, wherever they are working, with convenient facilities, expanded capacity and the complete range of digital services for their films," said Chuck Dages, executive vice president, Warner Bros.
