It was a year of hard work and devotion for the Nu Boyana community. We have serviced 35 international film productions at the studios and over 250 commercials, music videos and events.
Worldwide FX, our daughter company, has worked on more than 2000 VFX shots during the last twelve months and had another course for beginners in 2D compositing. It has also been the year of its 15th anniversary. The company has grown from a classical small studio with five employees into a well-known visual effects house with more than 150 employees. It has been an amazing 15-year journey for the VFX artists who have been dedicated to creating top notch visual effects and to breathing life into the spectacular ideas of filmmakers.
B2Y Productions - our in-house production company delivered more than 37 projects to domestic and international clients. Traditionally we participated in major world film and entertainment industry markets - AFM, Cannes Marché du Film, EFM Berlin, Focus London, IBC.
Following our dedication to support Bulgarian filmmakers, we partnered with the biggest local movie events - Sofia International Film Festival and Sofia Meetings, the oldest film festival in Bulgaria - Kinomania, So Independent Film Festival and we provided services for them. We supported as a co-producer several Bulgarian features which we hope will impress audiences in the movie theatres next year.
Nu Boyana Film School made it possible for more than 70 students to gain hands-on experience in the cinematic arts and learn from acknowledged film professionals. We were happy to give a chance to more than 77 aspiring filmmakers to become our trainees and show their potential for starting a career in the industry.
We opened our Boyana Events branch and for the first time the studios welcomed the public for special parties, concerts and amazing performances.
2016 was a year full of exciting projects and unforgettable moments at Nu Boyana Film Studios! And the best part of it - we made many new friends and welcomed at the studio lots of amazing talents from all over the world. Thank you everyone, it was a pleasure!
Enjoy with us some of this year's movie magic pieces and stay tuned for more in 2017!
Happy New Year!
