The VFX industry has seen recent mass migrations to tax-friendly locales overseas. Until now Belgium hasn’t been one of those major runaway destinations. But European film company uMedia has unveiled a new financing deal through its VFX division uFX offering up to 40% of a project’s VFX budget for work done in-house. CEO Adrian Politowski announced the sizable offer today in Cannes. Brussels-based uMedia has additional international offices in LA, London, and Paris but its new scheme is made possible by a Belgian tax shelter. Eligible productions must spend a minimum of €50,000 through Belgium and must be a feature film, a TV movie, a TV series or documentary with a majority of European cast, crew and financing in place. The company’s recent credits include work on the Weinstein Company’s Grace Of Monaco and DreamWorks’ WikiLeaks pic The Fifth Estate.
