VFX Legion is a full-service company created to provide feature films and episodic series with visual effects that bring the full potential of remote technology in the Digital Age to productions.
Our story began in 2013 with a group of like-minded veteran creatives with a shared vision of a better, smarter, more efficient visual effects company. While a significant change in the visual effects industry tends to be driven by a seismic shift that makes it a necessity, Legion was the exception. Looking beyond the immediate needs of productions, we seized the opportunity to develop a forward-thinking next-generation remote business model with capabilities beyond the reach of the industry’s traditional infrastructure.
A decade before the ability to work from home became essential, we launched Legion, the first visual effects studio with a fully integrated collaborative remote pipeline at its core. Conceived in the digital realm, rather than adapting to it – a new remote company culture was born.

Shot in Georgia and set in Washington, D.C., ‘The First Lady’ called on Legion to digital recreate the iconic Lincoln Memorial with the detail needed for a pivotal scene that plays out in a fully CG environment to be indistinguishable from practical footage.
‘The First Lady’ tapped Legion’s particular expertise to help reframe a seminal historical event in episode seven – the performance of world-renowned contralto Marian Anderson on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
While existing footage provided the series with historical imagery of the 1939 public concert, VFX Legion was relied on to give viewers a look behind the curtain.
