A searchable online directory of visual effects and animation studios, the site does exactly what the name suggests: it brings back listings within a set distance of a search location, and displays them on a map.

You can filter results by market sector (feature films, commercials, cinematics, episodic TV, and so on), and there’s also the option to use the name of a software package as a keyword when searching for jobs.

Coverage is pretty good for large cities and studios, but thinner elsewhere: a quick search for Scandinavian VFX houses returns Ghost and Storm Studios, but not Toxic or Gimmick Visual Effects, for example.
