Production Company Profile: The Orphanage

The Orphanage is a motion picture production company dedicated to producing

innovative digital feature films for theatrical release.  The company was

founded by independent filmmakers and former Industrial Light + Magic visual

effects artists, Scott Stewart and Jonathan Rothbart.  By grouping feature

film development and production together with a proven team of visual

effects artists and designers at the San Francisco based facility, The

Orphanage is able to develop and produce a slate of entertaining, story

driven independent films that have the production value of major studio

pictures at a considerably lower cost than previously possible.  A number of

the company’s short film projects will be premiering this January in Park

City as part of the Sundance, Slamdance and DigiDance film festivals.   In

addition to original motion picture production, The Orphanage team is

currently completing visual-effects work on the upcoming Disney release

Brian DePalma’s MISSION TO MARS starring Tim Robbins and Gary Sinise.
