Since its creation in 1994, Atomic has remained one of London’s leading visual effects and animation boutiques for film, television and live events. In recent years we have become known for VFX work on a variety of projects from Hollywood blockbusters and tentpole streaming series to the best of European independent cinema. Recent work includes IT: Chapter 2 (Warner Bros), Rocketman (Paramount) and Dumbo (Disney). Streaming work includes Avenue 5 & Game of Thrones (HBO), Stranger Things (Netflix) and World on Fire (BBC).
Headquartered in the heart of London's West End, we are a stone’s throw from the major UK post production houses, and boast four floors of in-house facilities, multiple 3D and compositing workstations, an online edit suite and various meeting rooms. Employing a core collaborative team of loyal supervisors, artists, animators and technical directors, Atomic is a refreshing haven in which to create innovative visual effects, graphics and animation - no matter the size and scope of your project.
Founded by Justin Cornish and Brooke Lyndon-Stanford in the early days of computer generated imagery, the management team was joined by Clwyd Edwards in 2016 after 15 years at MPC, where he was Global Head of VFX overseeing their expansion into India and Canada. With over 200 projects behind us, Atomic has a track record of being ahead of the game both in business and technology - we had a facility house in Bulgaria up until they joined the EU, and now we have a Mumbai studio with 60 artist seats. Both sites are TPN security approved to work with all the major studios. Atomic also boasts a small office in Los Angeles.
Atomic’s links to the major Studios means our focus is on high end visual effects, as you can see from our recent work. However we have still kept our links to some of our favourite clients and use our unique skills to create some truly breathtaking visuals in other media. A recent job involved creating crazily high resolution animations, projected the entire length of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai (the tallest building in the world). Nobody gets a bigger canvas than that to play with!
Brooke Lyndon-Stanford (founder and CEO) is also very proud to have served three years as head of the UK branch of the Visual Effects Society and six years on the VES global board of directors, the last on the Executive Committee as their Treasurer.
