We’re thrilled to announce that Technicolor Creative Studios is now listed as a standalone company, trading on the Paris Euronext stock exchange. As a Technicolor Creative Studio, we’re proud to be part of an award-winning network of global studios including MPC, Mikros Animation and Technicolor Games.  

Technicolor Creative Studios has a rich legacy for innovation in the entertainment and advertising industries, including our 30-year history of extraordinary creativity in brand marketing and experience, consistently producing work for the world’s most notable brands from iconic Super Bowl commercials to globally renowned campaigns. 

Technicolor’s history also features iconic works such as Academy Award Winning features, Gladiator, 1917, The Jungle Book and Life of Pi, some of the world’s most recognizable animation IP such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and content for the world’s biggest gaming franchises. 

Each studio in the network will now be powered by shared technologies, creative talent, R&D, and investment in future platforms, giving us the structural power to provide clients content solutions across their IP journey from pixel-perfect advertisements to in-game assets and feature-length VFX and animation.

“As part of the wider Technicolor Creative Studios network, The Mill and our clients can benefit from a huge wealth of shared talent, infrastructure, and investment in technology. We will continue to work with our sister brands, MPC, Mikros Animation and Technicolor Games to innovate, explore new avenues of storytelling and capitalize on shared knowledge to deliver the best VFX, animation and design content for our clients. I am particularly excited for what this spin off means for our ability to further adapt, research, and develop content and technology that will enable brands to explore their footprint in The Metaverse and Web 3.0.    ”
Josh Mandel, President of Advertising

The new structure and collaborative vision will be cemented further with a Technicolor Creative Studios campus opening this year in Los Angeles Culver City, which will host The Mill and other brands under one roof, with the addition of a bespoke Virtual Production stage and Creators Hub strengthening our exceptional virtual production offering.  

Technicolor Creative Studios CEO Christian Roberton will be joined by an executive committee of seasoned industry professionals leading the business, including studio Presidents Tom Williams, Josh Mandel, Andrea Miloro and Jeaneane Falkler.

“My ambition is to build the world’s most successful visual arts company. We believe our legacy for innovation and creativity is our foundation for the future, and the success of our studios will rely on continued investment in cutting-edge technology, the world’s best talent and our ongoing relationships with major entertainment studios and brands. The next chapter as an independent company will be pivotal in our growth and evolution.”
