On an otherwise uneventful day in December 2013, AK Madhavan aka Madmax a visionary who opened up Indian shores for many an animation first, with a passion for developing visually stunning stories and a desire to push the boundaries of animation, founded Assemblage. Along with fellow trailblazers they set up a modest studio in a small space in Mumbai. Having built an enviable reputation over many decades as an approachable and supportive mentor, Max formed a team of 20-odd professionals as he took the entrepreneurial dive.
Arjun Madhavan decided to quit his private equity career in London and returned to India to join his father Max to build a world-class studio in the region. The studio’s prodigious growth has been a labor of love since its inception. A relentless pursuit of excellence by the team and unstinting confidence from clients enabled them to do the unthinkable. They delivered five global theatrical animated features and many television series. With a little more than tremendous goodwill, a solid reputation, and a passionate team, they set out to achieve the impossible. There was no looking back.
Assemblage partnered with Cinesite, one of the world’s leading independent digital entertainment studios headquartered in London with additional studios in Montreal and Vancouver alongside group VFX brands Image Engine, Trixter, FX3X as well as animation brands L’Atelier Animation and Squeeze Animation. Notable productions include Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Avengers: Endgame, Mary Poppins Returns, Avengers: Infinity War, Independence Day: Resurgence, Spectre, Space Jam, Addams Family, and The Revenant, for which it won a Visual Effects Society award in 2015. They recently won the BAFTA in Special, Visual and Graphic Effects for its work on The Witcher. Cinesite is our true creative partner who aligns with our vision of working with filmmakers to build characters and tell stories that are truly breathtaking. Our partnership encourages innovation, collaboration, and co-creation of spectacular visuals.
