Cinesite (Europe) Ltd (also known as Cinesite) is a digital visual effects and post-production facility in Londonmarker and one of the largest such companies in Europe. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kodak.


Cinesite offices in Hollywoodmarker and London were established in 1991 and 1994 respectively, as test sites for Kodak's Cineon computer system, an end-to-end solution for 2K and 4K digital files. Cinesite became so successful in its own right, however, that after Cineon was discontinued by Kodak in 1997, Cinesite developed into a visual effects facility. In 2003, Cinesite's Hollywood branch became incorporated, by Kodak, into LaserPacific, a multimedia, DVD authoring, digital intermediate and post-production facility.

Initially, the company worked solely as a visual effects facility for film. Since 1999, it has increasingly become involved in television, creating effects for several productions, including HBO's Generation Kill in 2008; Band of Brothers in 2002; Rome in 2006, again for HBO; and The State Within for the BBC in 2006.

The company has won awards for its visual effects, gaining Emmy Awards for Generation Kill in 2009 and Rome in 2005, as well as an Emmy Award nomination and a Royal Television Society award for Band of Brothers in 2001. Cinesite also contributed almost 500 Visual Effects shots to The Golden Compass, which won Oscar and BAFTA awards in 2007.

Directors Cinesite has worked with include Chris Weitz, Tim Burton, Wolfgang Petersen, Brian De Palma, John Woo, Alfonso CuarĂ³n, Joel Schumacher and David Dobkin.


In addition to visual effects, Cinesite also provides model construction and model unit photography through its offices in Shepperton Studiosmarker.
