Rodeo FX is a visual effects company involved in projects in the film, television, and advertising industry. The company currently has studios in Montreal, Quebec City, Munich, and Los Angeles.
Rodeo FX was founded in 2006 in Montreal, Canada, by Sébastien Moreau and started producing visual effects for feature films in 2007. In 2013, the company started producing visual effects for television for the first time, creating over 150 visually altered shots for the fourth season of the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones. In early 2014, it expanded outside of Montreal for the first time, opening an office in Quebec City, which now employs 35 animators and VFX artists. In December 2014, following its acquisition of the VFX company Hatch FX, Rodeo FX opened an office in Los Angeles. According to Jordan Soles, Rodeo's vice president of technology and development, the step was taken to bring the company closer to the studios, directors, and the film development process itself. In November 2017, the company announced the opening of a new office in Munich, Germany, to establish a hub for the visual effects market in Europe.
The studio's VFX work has been rewarded on many occasions, including six Visual Effects Society Awards for visual effects; these included two for the television series Game of Thrones and four for motion pictures. The company has also received three Emmy Awards for Outstanding Special Effects for its participation in the TV series Game of Thrones as well as three HPA (Hollywood Professional Association) Awards for the same series.
