We know that the stories from your dreams could be told using visual effects. Let us help you tell your story.

2005

A newly assembled team of young and hungry VFX artists led by founder Petar Jovovic and Marko Milicevic sets out to do the impossible: pull off Hollywood-ready visual effects in a French-Serbian feature production known as Tears for Sale. Crater team is born, and the French production crew christen us as [the] bunch of freaks from the apartment.

2006

The Crater team makes its first move outside national borders! Partnering up with Crater’s current art director Zoran Cvetkovic from Skopje, Macedonia, we get to work on some odd jobs for Indian productions. We catch a glimpse of what having a proper budget means, and start cooking up plans for taking over the world film by film.

2007

The Crater team becomes incorporated! Crater Studio LLC is born with an address in a rented downtown apartment in Belgrade, Serbia.

2008

Crater Studio meets United States! We visit LA for Siggraph and make our way to New York, meeting our first international contacts. Gregor Lakner, newly available after spending almost a decade at ILM, enters the stage. We get our first international gig: a commercial for Kinder, the European chocolate brand.

2009

Crater Studio gets its first office space! We move into TC Takovo, a newly built office complex next to the Belgrade Botanical Garden. Miljana joins the team as a partner.

2010

Crater goes to Hollywood! Or, at least, our work does in the flick The Other Guys, done in partnership with Evil Eye Studio from San Francisco. Milovan joins the studio as a partner.

2011

Crater Studio gets a new address! As we move into our state-of-the-art office space in downtown Belgrade, we finish up our first stereo project, Shark Night 3D.

2012

Crater goes to India! Starting with baby steps, we enter the market with a Kit-Kat commercial. Recognizing the struggle in talent acquisition, we set on building our own Training Center and open its doors by the end of the year.

2013

Crater is back at Siggraph! This time, we shake hands with legendary CFX Oscar winner Scott Anderson and secure our first project with him - Muhammad.

2014

Crater Studio enters power mode! We pull our most exhausting sprint thus far, with almost a year of continuous, studio-wide work on Mohammad and regroup for the next challenge.

2015

Crater Studio gets a production department!

2016

Part of Crater team does our first independent short, Pig on the Hill, in co-production with Lightstream Productions from Los Angeles, USA while the rest is busy pushing the limits with Shallows and Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
