For the sake of simplicity, their work will be listed here).

The company also has studios located in Los Angeles, Vancouver (which was shut down in December 2019), Toronto, New York City and Bangalore. With Technicolor having dedicated units in Bangalore for both Dreamworks Animation and Rockstar Games and serving as a shareholder for effects studio Digital Domain.
