LA-based market research and production service FilmFunds has acquired the California-based company which owns a visual effects and conversion business.

FilmFunds representatives said the deal would enable the company to becoming a one-stop shop for filmmakers.

FilmFunds has also placed a formal bid for Duran Duboi France, currently in Chapter 11

“While popular films like Star Wars and Titanic will soon be coming out in 3D, there are many others that have a built-in audience, if only studios and filmmakers had an easy-to-use, crowd-sourcing social marketing tool to prove it,” FilmFunds co-founder and chairman Carl Freer said.

“Now they do. FilmFunds looks forward to working with content owners to help identify and convert the most beloved 2D films for 3D-hungry audiences everywhere.”
