A company specialising in 3D visualisation and animation has recruited more staff after seeing an increase in commissions.
Elland-based Virtual Resolution has strengthened its in-house design team with a number of new appointments over the past six months and plans to “significantly” invest in its bespoke 3,000sq ft production studio in the coming weeks to increase capacity.
Improvements at the Wellington Mills site will include enhancing the firm’s filming facilities with the installation of a seven-metre wide green screen.
Managing director Tim Power, who set up the company in 2009 with fellow director John Hales, said he was committed to ongoing investment in technology and talent.
He said: “Our animations are in high demand from big name firms, including Asda Walmart, Balfour Beatty and Claremont Group Interiors, which means we have to continually review our expertise and technology to make sure we are at the forefront of developments in our field.
“We have recruited from a wide variety of backgrounds to build a versatile team with experience in architectural, graphic, interior and product design and we are now well positioned to push into new business areas in 2014.”
Virtual Resolution’s projects range from simple modelling and enhanced computer generated stills through to complex video animation.
The firm’s studios are equipped with in-house rendering facilities and computer design technology supported by an off-site data centre.
Recent work had included architectural visualisations for the refurbished Debenhams store on London’s Oxford Street. The company also works on projects for the Sheraton Hotel in Riyadh and Digicel in Haiti.
The firm will also expand its work with agencies and retailers.
