Jellyfish: working in a virtual world since 2015

Jellyfish started as a two-man band back in 2001, and since then has grown into one of the most respected visual effects and animation studios in the world.

Jellyfish’s new completely virtual studio 

They now employ over 300 artists across five UK studios and offer remote working around the globe. They are as dedicated as ever to creating stunning moving pictures.

VFX credits include blockbuster movies such as Lucas Films’ Star Wars series Solo: A Star Wars Story, The Last Jedi and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; TV Dramas including HBO’s Watchmen, Netflix’s The Innocents and Black Mirror: Hated in the Nation; TV Documentaries such as Planet Dinosaur and Inside the Human Body.

Planet Dinosaur is brought in-house with Jellyfish Pictures completing entire work on the full CG epic BBC primetime show, boosting the studio to 80 people strong (2010)

Since the launch of Jellyfish Animation in 2014, Jellyfish has produced high-quality CG animation for DreamWorks Animation holiday special How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming, top-rated children’s shows, Dennis and Gnasher: Unleashed (CBBC), Floogals (Universal Kids) and Bitz & Bob (Cbeebies) and most recently, has embarked on developing and producing its own original animated children’s content.

In 2017, as part of the company’s natural growth, ambition and evolution, Jellyfish ventured in curating long-form animated series, serials and family features with global commercial appeal.
