International quality standards of the post production studio, backed by professional dedication of Indian VFX artists made it stand apart. The voice was loud and clear. Double negative provided all its artists the required creative freedom, time and space, in-house facilities, various employee benefits and many other artist centric international policies. Indian Double negative artists were mentored by international artists time to time. They received in-depth knowledge and workflow of softwares, plugins, scripts; all integrated seamlessly with the post production pipeline. Many a times, Indian artists were sent to international facilities of Double Negative for upgradation purpose. These are the reasons, in less than a year, the employee base at VFX facility of Goregaon Dneg studio crossed over 900 artists. It was a huge chunk for visual effects jobs in Mumbai. They executed impeccable output for movies including Fast 7 (The Fate of the Furious), Wonder Woman, Life, The Mummy and many others.
