The Jungle Group is moving out of the VFX and TV production sectors ahead of the August closure of its Dean Street base.

Managing director Graham Ebbs said the “forced closure” of its Dean Street office, following the landlord’s decision to redevelop the building, was “a major factor in our decision to go back to our roots and focus on audio and music design as our core offering”. 

Jungle will now consolidate operations at its Wardour Street premises, which is currently undergoing a £500,000 refit.

The post firm said the VFX and production arms would continue to “operate in their own right”.

Ebbs said: “Jungle has always been best known for its excellence in audio post.

“Although VFX and production will no longer be part of Jungle’s portfolio we continue to work closely with the teams to provide these services when required by our clients.”

Refurbishment work has already started at the Wardour Street offices, which will house 10 audio suites by the time the work completes in July.

A 7.1 Dolby cinema studio will be built on the first floor, with three new audio studios also planned.
