“Following new share issuances in 2021, our strategy was to invest in and focus on the core business of visual effects and post-production, and our market leading virtual humans technology, and now this strategy is paying off with six consecutive quarters of double-digit topline growth”, commented Mr. Daniel Seah, CEO of Digital Domain.
Digital Domain enjoys strong and growing pipeline of production contracts from the world’s leading content production companies from both Hollywood studios and streaming platforms, and continues to grow its production capacity in all of its key locations in the USA, Canada, India and Mainland of China.
