In Summer 2017, Stormborn Studios Inc. was launched with the idea to provide FX services to various clients with creative ideas that don't have the means to maintain an entire FX departement throughout the year. Led by the two owners Manuel and Goran, the studio expands and shrinks based on the projects needs. With our experience, pipeline and infrastructure, we can provide a high class service and adapt quickly to the most challenging situations.
