Dimension Secures Multimillion-Pound Investment


The production studio Dimension, behind Apple TV+’s Masters of the Air and the Whitney Houston biopic I Wanna Dance With Somebody, has landed a multimillion-pound investment from the U.S.-based private equity firm Growth Catalyst Partners (GCP).

The investment will fuel Dimension’s international growth, expanding production capabilities in markets such as the U.K., U.S. and Europe.

Dimension’s work across virtual production, visualization and virtual humans has already been widely adopted by major film, broadcast, sports, music and location-based entertainment productions. Its upcoming projects include Those About to Die (Peacock) and Here (Sony Pictures).

Simon Windsor, co-founder and co-CEO of Dimension, said: “For over ten years, Dimension has been at the cutting edge of real-time and virtual production, with our advanced 3D content pipelines and technologies powering major films, shows, media, and entertainment experiences.

“The rapid acceleration and convergence of real-time, volumetric and AI technologies increasingly present unparalleled creative opportunities for filmmakers and storytellers, bringing with it game-changing production approaches, new efficiencies, and greater quality.

“Dimension has built one of the largest and most experienced virtual production teams, and as demand for our services continues to grow, we are thrilled to partner with the exceptional team at GCP to invest in our exciting roadmap and the expansion of our U.K. and global production capabilities.”

James O’Callaghan, managing director at Growth Catalyst Partners, commented: “Dimension is leading the next generation of content creation and filmmaking. It’s grown from a small U.K. studio to a global production provider that has become indispensable to major Hollywood studios and new forms of entertainment experiences, offering efficient pipelines and technologies that deliver incredible results.

“GCP has a history of partnering with ambitious teams and progressive high-growth companies. We’re excited to become part of Dimension’s journey and believe this investment will accelerate the team’s development of new technologies and growth into new markets.”
