ReDefine expands European presence further with new Budapest Studio

We are thrilled to announce the opening of another new European studio – in Budapest, Hungary! Budapest will be our fourth site in Europe, joining our studios in London, Sofia, and Barcelona, and our wider global network of studios across North America and India. 

The Budapest studio will be led by VFX Supervisor Ashraf Elsayed Hassan (Gooseboy, Border, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV), who brings over 20 years of industry experience to the role

Talking about the new studio, ReDefine Managing Director Rohan Desai said: “I’m delighted to announce the opening of our fourth European studio – in the historic city of Budapest. Hungary’s capital is a world-renowned centre of culture and one of Europe’s largest cities, as well as being the centre of Hungary’s busy media industry. We have job opportunities for talented individuals at all levels and across all departments, and Ashraf and I look forward to building a team that will put Budapest firmly on the map as a centre for top-flight visual effects work.” 

VFX Supervisor Ashraf Hassan added: “It has long been a dream of mine to create opportunities for all the amazing home-grown talent in Hungary to work on international projects at the very highest level. With the opening of ReDefine Budapest my dream is coming true, and I’m excited to talk to artists at all levels about coming on-board to create a truly special new studio. We’re building a home here in the heart of Budapest where creativity can thrive – come and join us!” 

As Ashraf says, we’re looking for great people to help us build ReDefine Budapest. If you are a VFX or Animation artist who wants to ReDefine their career and work on exciting international projects, please submit your application now: 


“SCREAM presented a wide range of VFX challenges from adding photorealistic knife blades and blood to action sequences to cleaning up special effect makeup appliances to building dynamic and seamless exterior set extensions — all elements that the look, feel, and realism of the movie hinged on. It was no small task and from the set work to the finished product, we were consistently amazed by ReDefine’s creative approach to problem-solving, their energy and enthusiasm for the process, and their steadfast attention to detail. All departments and their teams truly elevated this project beyond our wildest expectations and we can’t wait to work with them again.”

“The animation for Rock Dog 2 was produced during the global COVID pandemic. Despite the technical challenges and complexities of the entire crew working remotely from home, the regular communication and collaboration between Splash Entertainment and Redefine’s experienced teams has resulted in a movie that we are all extremely proud of.”

Mike Young – Executive Producer, Rock Dog 2


“ReDefine really delivered for me and HBO on this project; starting fully remote before the pandemic started, then continuing to make deadlines we needed up through delivery. I appreciated Serkan’s patience with changes that came up, and would definitely work with ReDefine again on a similar project!”

“The visual effects for Brahmastra will pioneer new techniques and processes that have not previously been seen in movies for the mainstream Indian film market. Having worked with DNEG, and now ReDefine, I know that together we are creating amazing visuals that reflect a quality and calibre that audiences have come to expect from big budget Hollywood films.”
