    Disney opens new digital movie studio in Novato, CA

    April 27, 2007

    Disney's ImageMovers Digital, the new motion capture animation studio headed by Robert Zemeckis, is opening up shop in an old hanger (a 90,000 square feet facility) at Hamilton Army Air Force Base in Novato, CA, reports the San Francisco Business Times. The unit is expected to employ 300 people.

      I thought their studio/workshop is off of Cesar Chaves Street in San Franisco. South of Patrero... also known as Army Street. M5 Industries.

        As a native of Novato, I think this is fantastic! I'll have to start camping out around the hangers...

          That is where their main workshop is but for major explosions or effects work they always head off site to multiple locations around the San Fransisco Bay area.

              They are always at Alameda Naval Station for all their wide-open stuff.

              They goto the county bomb disposal site for their big-bang stuff.. or way out in the Desert.

              The hanger and runway they use is on the Naval Station.
