Jellyfish Pictures Launches in Mumbai


VFX and animation studio Jellyfish Pictures has expanded into India, with Jasjit Singh appointed general manager of the new Mumbai-based unit.

Jasjit, formerly a senior producer at ReDefine, brings over 15 years of experience to the role. The new division supports the growing portfolio of the company, which has already hired over 220 new artists since the beginning of the year.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to become part of the Jellyfish Pictures family,” Singh said. “The company culture and ethics create a great place to work, and I anticipate an exciting and fast-paced future ahead of us!”

“Jasjit is one of the most admired leaders within the Indian VFX industry,” said David Patton, CEO of Jellyfish Pictures. “His proven experience in managing complex VFX projects coupled with his excellent people-focused management skills gives me great confidence that Jellyfish Pictures will quickly build a very strong and diverse talent base within India.”

Patton continued, “We will soon have over 500 creatives working for Jellyfish Pictures around the world. Given that India is home to so many fantastic VFX and Animation artists, it makes perfect sense for us to set up a base in Mumbai to ensure we are able to work closely with the very best of this incredible talent. We anticipate that we’ll have over 100 Jellyfish Pictures artists working in Mumbai by the end of the year, supported by our next generation production platforms.”
