Branch's sister company shade VFX first opened its first east coast office in 2013, in midtown Manhattan. Building on the success of managing multiple locations and seeing a need for further expansion in the NY area, Branch was born. Branch is built on the same industrial feature film pipeline, and MPAA certified security measures that has made shade so successful. While Branch is a completely separate company, offering services to all visual effects customers, it has the benefit of having an extremely solid braintrust from both a technical and artistic perspective to propel it into the future.


Branch takes security, confidentiality, and non disclosure extremely seriously.  While Branch does work closely with its sister, shade, all other customers data is siloed on a private, secure partition, that can only be accessed by people on a need to know basis. We take pride in the confidence that our customer's data and project information remains completely separated from other clients and projects.
