Ingenuity Studios, a VFX house serving feature film, episodic TV, music video and advertising clients, is now part of Streamland Media’s global postproduction offerings. With four locations spanning the U.S. and Canada, Ingenuity Studios further expands Streamland Media’s resources for content creators worldwide, providing customized services from its picture division, Picture Shop; visual effects division, Ghost VFX; sound division, Formosa Group; and marketing division, Picture Head.

Ingenuity Studios’ work can be seen in feature films including Many Saints of Newark, A Star is Born, Get Out, and Booksmart, and in Emmy-nominated series such as Hacks, The Walking Dead, Cowboy Bebop, and Euphoria and the newly released Paper Girls.

Founded in 2004 as a studio born out of music video visual effects, Ingenuity quickly became a go-to facility for top artists and directors, encompassing collaborations with the likes of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Imagine Dragons and Lady Gaga and more recently Billie Eilish, BTS, and Shawn Mendes. Using skills developed in the trenches of short-form content, Ingenuity later shifted into high-end offerings in the film and episodic space.

“There is no limit to what we can do together,” said Streamland Media CEO Bill Romeo. “Streamland Media and Ingenuity Studios are aligned in our creative-driven philosophy and dedication to our extraordinary teams. We are all committed to facilitating powerful, creative and connected collaboration to advance the vision of storytellers.”

David Lebensfeld, founding partner of Ingenuity Studios, noted, “From the beginning, we have been committed to building a studio that serves our clients at the highest level possible and we are able to do that with a team of incredible artists and technologists. The team at Streamland Media shares our passion for storytelling while creating a service level second to none, and we look forward to being part of a community that supports our vision and provides our clients an innovative global network of talent and technology.”

Ingenuity Studios, headquartered in Los Angeles, has offices in New York, Vancouver, and Atlanta.

Trive Capital and Five Crowns Capital supported the deal. David Stinnett, partner at Trive Capital, said, “Streamland and Trive are strategically acquiring industry leading businesses centered around unparalleled creative talent and integrating into a single, global platform to continuously enhance the value proposition we offer our customers. Further, as VFX services are becoming increasingly important to post-production, we look forward to leveraging Ingenuity’s stellar reputation as we continue providing state-of-the-art VFX work in support of new and existing customers’ high-quality content offerings.”
