Netflix moves forward with its plan to acquire companies that may contribute to enhancing its in-house production capabilities worldwide. Following the acquisition of Roald Dahl Story Company (RDSC) and Night School Studio earlier this year, on November 22 the streaming giant announced the purchase of Scanline VFX, described by the company as “one of the most creative and innovative visual effects studios in the world.”

Founded in Germany in 1989, Scanline VFX took part in important productions such as Independence Day, Eternals, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, Godzilla vs. Kong, Iron Man, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Jocker, Game of Thrones and Stranger Things (for Netflix). The studio has locations in Munich, Stuttgart, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Montreal, Seoul and London. It is currently working on new projects such as The Batman, The Flash, Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom, Black Adam and Netflix’s originals Don’t Look Up, The Gray Man, Slumberland, The Adam Project and Stranger Things upcoming season

Netflix has made it clear that Scanline VFX will keep operating as a standalone company and working with other clients. At the same time, the OTT spokespeople asserted: “We’ll also continue to rely on many other studios around the world for our VFX needs so we can continue to ensure that our creators have access to the world’s most innovative tech, and continue to bring the most compelling and cutting-edge storytelling to our members.”
