In another show of continued confidence in Adelaide’s creative sector, Technicolor is getting set to move into their newly refurbished offices within the Adelaide Myer Centre.
The global media post-production and special effects company will take up 3 levels of the iconic building which has had a high-tech makeover. The establishment will generate up to 400 jobs, with the first wave of employees expected to move in from April 2019.
With offices around the world including in Paris, London, Los Angeles, New York and Shanghai, the decision to base their Australian headquarters in the Adelaide CBD is a “game changer” for the CBD and is expected to inject more than $250 million into the local economy over the next 10 years.
Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor said she is strongly supportive of the growth of South Australia’s creative industries.
“It is great that Technicolor recognises our State’s international reputation and is investing in the city,” she said.
“Investments such as City of Adelaide’s Ten Gigabit Adelaide project underpins economic development, job creation, city vibrancy and population growth.”
“It will also have a ripple effect for the local property market and will create numerous job opportunities and career avenues for young professionals looking to get into the digital / SFX industry.”
Technicolour has worked on films such as the Jungle Book, The Martian, Blade Runner 2049, Wonder Woman, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Shape of Water.
The company will join the likes of other successful local visual effects and media production companies based in the CBD such as Rising Sun Pictures and Resin.
