Haymaker VFX

Haymaker VFX is the ultimate VFX studio in Gothenburg, Sweden and Los Angeles, California!

As the largest studio of its kind in the Västra Götaland region, we’ve created a reputation for excellence that is second to none. With a team of 23 skilled artists, producers and visionary leaders, we bring our clients’ dreams to life.

Our extensive list of prestigious feature films where we’ve contributed VFX continues to grow, including multiple Guldbagge awards in the Best VFX category in 2018 and 2022, and the honor of providing all VFX for Jim Jarmusch’s Cannes Film Festival opener “The Dead Don’t Die.”

Haymakers custom-built ”Digital Extras”-system has been used on multiple feature films and commercials. When the cost of several thousand extras becomes too great, we build digital extras to fill up streets, stadiums and even boats – cheering, running, protesting and queing. All with photorealistic quality!

Our commercial division is proud to work with a global roster of top brands and agencies, such as Polestar, Absolut Vodka, Oatly, Samsung, Burger King and Hyundai among others, delivering top-notch quality, creativity, and customer service every time.

Our custom-built offices are a showcase of security, certified by both TPN (Trusted Partner Network) and Disney Security, which is necessary working with international clients such as Netflix and Disney.

Our Swedish HQ also boasts a top-notch MoCap studio, enabling us to tailor specific movements for our digital characters.

We are here to support our clients from early pre-production stages and planning to on-set supervision, production and finalization. Trust us to take your project to the next level and into the world of award-winning visual effects.
