The James Bond and Harry Potter film franchises are just two examples of this Emmy award-winning company’s 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. It bought two Canadian companies, Image Engine and Nitrogen Studios, in 2015 and 2017, for undisclosed sums, helping overseas sales reach £36.1m last year.
