Further to the security, Refinery has undergone the ABC/Disney Security Audit to ensure the correct equipment, processes and procedures are in place to protect our client’s IP. Our Showreels reflect some of our more recent work with studios such as Disney and Sony. With the DTI’s South African Foreign Film Production and Post-Production rebate, completing VFX in SA, comes with an added incentive.
