In 2012, ILM planted roots in Vancouver and just a year later, the company expanded into a new 30,000 square-foot studio space in Gastown. In 2017, the company expanded to a second building to meet the growing demand and we continue to seek out and employ the top talent in the business to work on film and television projects. The Vancouver studio has led numerous efforts for ILM including the studio’s visual effects contributions to films such as Aquaman, and Terminator: Dark Fate.
ILM’s Vancouver offices are on the territory of the Coast Salish Peoples including the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish Nations. As a community of visual storytellers operating on land where rich artistic traditions have been passed down over generations, we endeavor to participate in decolonizing practices. With appreciation and respect, we thank the Indigenous people who have lived and worked on these lands from time immemorial.
