From a modest beginning in 1997 with four core team members in a garage in Mumbai, Prime Focus has grown into the world's leading Visual Entertainment Services group, employing over 4,500 staff across three continents and four timezones.
Prime Focus is known for achieving a series of firsts in the Indian post production market, including offering India's first high-end finishing system in 1997, the first film scanning and recording system in 2001, the first Spirit Datacine in 2003 and the first Motion Control rig in 2004.
In 2006, Prime Focus went public, floating on the Bombay and National stock exchanges in India, allowing the company to action its strategy to become a global enterprise.
The first port of call was the UK, through the acquisition of VTR plc. Three more companies were also acquired and consolidated in the UK – Clear Post Production in the summer of 2006, then Machine FX and Clarke Associates in January 2008. Operating under the banner of Prime Focus London plc, the company is listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange.
In 2007, Prime Focus expanded its reach into North America with the purchase of Post Logic Studios and Frantic Films. These acquisitions allowed Prime Focus to offer cutting edge services and technology in Los Angeles, New York and Vancouver.
Today Prime Focus offers a unique proposition – a state of the art infrastructure and "Global Digital Pipeline" working across all of the world's major media markets, giving access to industry leading worldwide talent and global workflows, and allowing clients to realise substantial time and cost savings.
