VFX company receives investment from the Business Growth Fund.

Ivan Dunleavy has joined Oscar-winning VFX company Milk as the non-executive chairman.

The former CEO of Pinewood Group has been hired to manage the growth of the company after 17 years of experience as Pinewood’s CEO.

In addition, Milk has received an investment of £2m from the Business Growth Fund (Bgf) which the company will use to expand its studios, invest in new technical equipment and add staff.

Milk has recently worked on the likes of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them and Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire.

It is currently in production on Alex Garland’s Annihilation, Kingsman 2, TV anthology series Electric Dreams and Doctor Who series 10, among others.

Private Sme-backer Bgf was established in 2011 and is funded by five of the UK’s banking groups – Barclays, Hsbc, Lloyds, Rbs and Standard Chartered.

Former Pinewood Chief Ivan Dunleavy Joins ‘Doctor Who’ VFX Firm Milk

19 June 2017 3:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ivan Dunleavy has joined Milk as chairman as the U.K.-based VFX firm raises new finance and scales up.

Milk has been more involved in TV than film, working on series including “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock.” As Dunleavy joins, it has raised £2 million ($2.6 million) from private investment group Bgf, which it will use to increase capacity and do more work in features.

Milk, based in London and in the Welsh capital of Cardiff, was founded in 2013 by Will Cohen and a group of other VFX executives. The company said it would be adding to its 150 staff with the new investment. Its upcoming projects include Alex Garland feature “Annihilation” and “Kingsman 2,” as well as Channel 4 and Amazon Philip K. Dick series “Electric Dreams.”

Dunleavy comes in after leaving Pinewood in April after 17 years. A successor has yet to be announced, with chairman Paul Golding in control as interim chief executive.
