International Track 200

Cinesite produces visual effects and animations for the likes of Disney and Netflix. Founded in 1991 as part of Kodak, chief executive Antony Hunt, 59, Cinesite (No 156) has produced special effects work for the next James Bond film, No Time to Die — its ninth outing for the 007 franchise led a buyout in 2012. It has studios in Canada and Germany, helping overseas sales reach £74.9 million in the year to April 2020. Its designers worked on digital production remotely while filming was postponed. The next Bond film will be the ninth to feature the Emmy award-winning company’s work.
