MUMBAI: Digital Domain Holdings, the parent company of the visual effects house Digital Domain, has aligned with DreamWorks Animation to produce virtual reality content and experiences for the global family entertainment company’s characters, beginning with the worlds of ‘Shrek’ and ‘Kung Fu Panda’.

In the rapidly exploding world of virtual reality, Digital Domain creates, shoots and produces visual effects, 360 degree capture and live streaming as well as full live action production in the virtual reality space.

“For over two decades, DreamWorks Animation has been entertaining audiences with some of the most original stories and beloved characters in entertainment. We are honored to be a part of bringing that great legacy to virtual reality audiences worldwide,” said Digital Domain Holdings MD Rich Flier.
