Intelligent Creatures (IC) is a motion picture visual effects company located in Toronto, Canada.

History[edit]

IC was founded in September 2002 by current CEO Lon Molnar, a graduate of the Vancouver Film School, Michael Hatton, Raymond Gieringer, and Wendy Lanning, and commenced production in 2003. The company was created in response to the demands of the visual effects industry, at a time when there was a shortage of visual effects vendors in Toronto.

Location[edit]

IC's studio is located in the east end of Toronto, in close proximity to Pinewood Toronto Studios and Cinespace Film Studios. A satellite office is located in North Bay, Ontario.

Projects[edit]

IC has worked with film studios such as Warner Bros., Walt Disney Pictures, Columbia Pictures, New Line Cinema, Paramount, and 20th Century Fox.

The company has worked on films such as Zack Snyder's Watchmen (for which it designed Dave Gibbon's character Rorschach), Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain, and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel, Stranger than Fiction, Battle: Los Angeles, and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Titles currently in production include Omega, Orphan Black, Transporter: The Series and The Last Druid: Garm Wars.

IC has received a nomination for Best Visual Effects in a Broadcast Program from the Visual Effects Society for its work on Secret Universe: Journey Inside the Cell / Battlefield Cell (one part of the Discovery Channel's Curiosity).
