Base FX was formed in 2003 as a partnership between a renowned Beijing VFX training school and the company’s founder, Chris Bremble, to create visual effects for independent films in Hollywood. After three years working primarily on creature and sci-fi films, the company was formally founded in 2006 with a team of 12 artists in Beijing, all with a background in visual effects training. This core team provided Base with the most experienced creative management in China, and built the foundation for a culture of creative innovation and client services that have propelled Base into a leading position in China’s visual effects industry.
Nearly a decade later, the company has completed work on over 150 feature films, provided services to all the major Hollywood studios, developed relationships with the top Mainland and Hong Kong directors.
