Milk VFX recently announced that they have acquired VFX studio Lola Post Production. The combined capacity of the two studios will be over 300 representing a significant creative platform with the ability to create a full range of innovative visual effects for the premium film and television markets, spanning genres from drama to factual; well positioned to service the rapidly growing sector.
Lola Post Production will have a separate identity and be a distinct studio in the Milk family. Lola Post Production founder and creative director Rob Harvey, who was at the helm since its creation in 2000, will continue to lead the Lola team. He will work as the creative director and VFX supervisor and will work closely alongside Milk’s board and senior leadership team.
As per a report in Broadcast Now Milk, executive chairman Jag Mundi said, “We are thrilled to welcome Rob and the Lola team to the Milk family. This enables us to expand our scale and capabilities both creatively and commercially. Bringing Rob and the Lola team’s award-winning expertise and reputation, especially in the factual market, into one group with a shared vision, positions us well to help our clients bring their projects to life.”
“We’re delighted to be welcoming the Lola team to our growing Milk family. This is an exciting time for us all as we begin to work in unison and collectively extend our range of capabilities and capacity and grow and nurture our talented teams and culture,” said Milk co-owner and VFX supervisor Sara Bennett.
The Lola Post Production studio has worked on projects like Universe (BBC), Dangerous Liaisons (Starz/Lionsgate), Dinosaurs: The Final Day with David Attenborough (BBC) and so on.
Milk VFX recently moved into new premises in London’s Clerkenwell. Milk’s move to a new home comes as the studio continues to boost its creative and production teams to work across an exciting range of episodic and film projects.
