With a track record spanning more than 80 feature films and almost 1,000 commercials, Buf Compagnie is diversifying its revenue sources and forging long-term partnerships by positioning itself as a co-producer rather than just a standard vfx shop.
The change began when Buf produced Oscar-nominated short “Even Pigeons Go to Heaven” in 2007 and launched Angele & Fine Productions, named after founder Pierre Buffin’s daughters, to line-produce international projects that are serviced by Buf under France’s Trip tax rebate scheme. Titles have included “Thor,” “The Grandmaster” and “Odd Thomas.”
The company also operates two L.A. production arms: Angele Productions for live-action projects and Fine Productions for animation.
In 2012, Buf established post houses in Montreal and Brussels to access local tax shelters.
Its first project via the Brussels unit was Nicolas Bary’s €12 million ($16 million) dark comedy, “The Scapegoat,” which bowed in France last October.
Co-productions include “Toby Alone,” with Amber Entertainment, »
