Testimonials

"Pixel Magic is a great example of the kind of companies we hoped to position Louisiana to secure when we strengthened Louisiana’s film production and digital-interactive media tax credits during the last legislative session."
Bobby Jindal, Louisiana State Govenor


"During a tight and demanding post schedule on Rush Hour 3, we were always able to rely on Pixel Magic for beautiful work. I greatly appreciated the truly collaborative nature of working with Tyler Foell & Ray McIntyre Jr. in the creation of everything from deadly flying knives to large crowd simulations. Thanks for all your hard work guys and I look forward to working with you again."
Adam Howard, Co-VFX Supervisor "Rush Hour 3"


"Our experience with Pixel Magic was not only technically excellent, but the creativity, professionalism and the extraordinary work you provided added to the overall feel and texture of the film itself. You made our shots and us look good. THANK YOU."
Jeff Okun, VFX Supervisor "Blood Diamond"


"In 300, we were aiming for a very specific, stylized look, and the shots demanded both a high level of creative and technical proficiency. Pixel Magic was able to meet those demands head on and provide us with a great battle sequence! I look forward to working with them again in the future."
