Scanline VFX Studios confirmed its employees are continuing to work on Marvel Studios’ The Eternals and more from home.

Governments at various levels from across the world are ordering non-essential businesses to temporarily close in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. As part of these efforts, studios have postponed or canceled production on multiple projects in order to reduce the risk of exposing its employees to the virus, but fans have been wondering how films or television shows that were already in the post-production phase might be impacted by the pandemic.

Today, Scanline VFX Studios announced that all of its employees across the world are successfully working on projects, which includes Marvel Studios’ The Eternals, from their home for the time being. In a statement by Scanline VFX Studios president Stephen Trojansky, the company emphasized that projects in the pipeline “will continue as normal” and that they are open for new projects as well:

“As of Monday, all 650 of Scanline’s crew across Los Angeles, Vancouver, Montreal, London, Munich, Stuttgart and Seoul studios are working successfully from home, transforming Scanline into a completely remote visual effects studio for the time being. From now on, not a single employee needs to set foot into a physical office location, making us independent of local government restrictions and lockdowns while providing a safe and healthy working environment for all crew.

As we move into the weeks and months ahead, we are here to support our clients and the wider VFX community. Shows in the pipeline will continue as normal but we are also open for new projects and can expand our home setup capacity as needed.”
