Barnstorm Brainstorm

We may have been a bit silent on the blog, but it’s been business as usual this year! This past week, we had our second annual Barnstorm Brainstorm where we came together to discuss our ideas for making Barnstorm a better company both for our employees and for our clients. Can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!

The Good Wife Continues!

It's official, The Good Wife has been renewed for a seventh season on CBS and we could not be more excited.  Having done visual effects on the show since Season 5, we look forward to visually complementing it for another great year.  Word on the street it is, there will be cast shake-ups and lots of surprises in Season 7, so stay tuned! 


We've Moved!

If you haven’t heard, Barnstorm has recently gotten some new digs!  We’ve expanded quite a bit in the past year, and this of course, has required a bigger office.  Check it out:

We are now 18 people strong and growing, including 2 VFX directors, 2 VFX coordinators and 11 artists.  Please feel free to stop by and say hello! We're hard at work, wrapping up some very cool projects.  Stay tuned for more on the blog in the coming weeks!
