The Avengers and James Bond franchises are just two examples of this Emmy award-winning company’s film work. Cinesite produces visual effects and feature animations for the likes of Disney, 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures Animation. It was founded in 1991 as a division of Kodak before chief executive Antony Hunt, 56, led a management buyout in 2012. Sales reached £43.9m last year, driven by a strong international presence, especially in North America. It now plans to produce more content through its feature animations division and boost business in China; it is forecasting sales of £100m by 2020.
