VHQ acquires Blackmagic Post in Singapore

VHQ has acquired the Post Production business and assets of Blackmagic Design in Singapore. This  acquisition effectively creates a Post Production, Visual Effects and Animation powerhouse in Singapore, with a client base covering South East Asia, Australia, India, China, Europe and  USA.  VHQ will now manage another 11,000 sq ft of high-end post production and visual effects facility, in addition to its present 8,000 sq ft of space, with a total of 100 staff. This will be, by far, the biggest home grown, independent business of its kind in Singapore. VHQ can now offer its clients an even greater range of post services for projects covering a broad spectrum of genre, scale, complexity and budget.
Low Kok Wah, Managing Director of VHQ Group said "This acquisition is a very strategic complement to our strengths, putting us at the very forefront of post production, visual effects and animation in this region. The levels of service, quality, creative consistency across the VHQ offices in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Beijing will be further enhanced with the addition of a group of talented and highly trained artists and adoption of best-of-breed toolsets. We will adopt the Black magic's  Da Vinci Grading and Data Management workflows throughout the VHQ regional offices."

Peter Barber, President of Blackmagic Design Technologies said. "The sale of our Post Production Facility allows us to free up senior management resources to focus on product development. We are very pleased to have found a good home in VHQ for the Blackmagic Design Post Production facility team and look forward to the continued relationship with this facility as a beta site for Blackmagic Design products."
