MPC is part of Technicolor so it makes sense to share existing workforce
for film and commercials in Bangalore, Beijing, Vancouver. Rather than
having people working on shifts in London or LA, they work during the day
in different locations this way we can have labour intensive work done
within the client's deadline. It is not uncommon on a project to have CGI
done in one place, roto in another one according to artists availability
and final compositing done in London or LA where the client is. The
artists in Bangalore and Beijing are very enthusiactic, competent and
proud to work with the London and LA MPC motherships. As for labour laws
and hours I have no doubt everyone is treated fairly but please feel free
to give us a call so we can answer your questions.
