Branch is different. Branch is special. Branch is specific.
Branch is born of a need for domestically located services for baseline tasks such as rotoscoping, 3d tracking, paint and beauty. Nearly every part of every visual effects production is built on these fundamental tasks, which are frequently outsourced to Asia and even Canada. There are a multitude of reasons to keep these tasks domestic; most importantly, adherence to rules regarding tax incentives. Additionally, overseas outsourcing is a revenue vampire, reducing your competitive edge through long feedback loops, extreme time differences, language barriers and general quality control. Branch mitigates all of those conflicts.
...while keeping your bottom line, and your tax rebates in tact.
