Since 1995, Blur Studio has been creating award-winning visual effects, animation and design, applying its creative skills across various mediums. We produce 3D character animation, motion design and visual effects for feature films and television, game cinematics & trailers, large format films, location-based entertainment, commercials and integrated media. Located in Venice, California, we combine the passion and excitement from our directors, animators, designers, concept artists, and writers with our clients into a collaborative creative approach that results in compelling visuals and storytelling.
In 2004, Blur was nominated for its first Academy Award for our original short film, “Gopher Broke.” This is one of five original films that we have written, directed and created over the years to develop original content and build a solid pipeline that can expand for feature film production. We have several projects in development, spanning all genres; sci-fi, action/adventure, fantasy as well as family features. And in addition to in-house development Blur has also joined forces with several accomplished directors and writers to develop feature films.
Today, with a state of the art in-house motion capture system, a driven team of directors , producers and artists, along with a character pipeline that brings life to all types of creatures, Blur’s roster of work continues to grow. Recently, we created all the space sequences in James Cameron’s blockbuster “Avatar,” and produced the critically-acclaimed trailers for LucasArts “Star Wars: The Old Republic” and “The Force Unleashed II.” On the commercial front, Blur is currently spearheading two large campaigns for Toshiba’s new innovative products and playful Goldfish Crackers for Pepperidge Farm. In large format films we have an impressive 3d ride experience opening in Dubai in 2011 featuring immersive stereoscopic animation. And the list goes on as we continue to work with clients like EA, Fox, Microsoft, Universal Studios, CBS, Y&R, Warner Bros., Activision, and Paramount Studios among others.
