Leading creative media services provider and Next Wave Partners portfolio company, Molinare, has announced two new partnerships to expand its services in performance motion capture, visual effects (VFX) and animation.
The relationships, with industry acclaimed international partners Centroid and Atomic Arts, broaden Molinare’s offering in Games as well as reinforcing its leadership in the UK for premium Film, Drama and Factual post production services.
The new partnerships follow Molinare’s expansion last year into Interactive Audio and the Games sector under new Creative Director Glen Gathard, who joins from Pinewood Group, with Molinare having already completed major projects including Ghosts of Tsushima (Sucker Punch Productions) and Watch Dogs: Legion (Ubisoft). Meanwhile the company has continued to support the premium Film, Drama and Factual segments with recent projects including BAFTA-nominated films Rocks (BFI) and The Father (Trademark Films), Peaky Blinders (BBC / Netflix) and Truth Seekers (Amazon).
Next Wave Partners together with the Future Fund have made a new growth capital investment of £4m in Molinare, to support the company’s further expansion under Managing Director Nigel Bennett. Nigel joined Molinare in 2019 after more than 20 years at Pinewood Group where he led the growth of Pinewood’s Creative Services division alongside Glen Gathard and Darren Woolfson, who also joins Molinare as Chief Technology Officer.
