Streamland Media (formerly Picture Head Holdings) has consolidated its visual effects offerings under the Ghost VFX brand. Picture Shop’s visual effects division will merge with Ghost VFX to service feature film, television and interactive media clients. LA-based Picture Shop, as part of the Streamland Media Group, acquired Denmark’s Ghost VFX in January.
Tom Kendall, who headed Picture Shop VFX, will move into the the role of president for Ghost VFX, based out of the Los Angeles facility. Jeppe Nygaard Christensen, Ghost co-founder and EVP, and Phillip Prahl, Ghost SVP, will continue to operate out of the Copenhagen studio.
“I’m very excited about combining both teams,” says Kendall. “It strengthens our award-winning VFX services worldwide, while concentrating our growing team of talent and expertise under one global brand. With strategic focus on the customer experience, we are confident that Ghost VFX will continue to be a partner of choice for leading storytellers around the world.”
Over the years, Ghost has contributed to more than 70 feature films and titles. Some of Ghost’s work includes Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian, The Walking Dead, See, Black Panther and Star Trek Discovery. Recent Picture Shop VFX credits include Hawaii Five-O, Magnum P.I., The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
The Streamland Media Group includes Picture Shop, Formosa Group, Picture Head, Ghost VFX, The Farm and Finalé, with locations in the US, Denmark, Canada and the UK.
