Century-owned visual effects facility Men From Mars is planning to move into sister company Molinare's Fouberts Place base in the first quarter of next year.

The 25-strong company, which is based at Ealing Studios, will move to an area now occupied by 20 staff from North One who produce the Audi Channel.

Moving Men From Mars into Fouberts Place will help to make joint projects easier to manage and is part of a significant overhaul of Molinare, following the sale of a majority stake in the company to Indian company Century in May.

The first phase of a£5m cash injection has funded a number of changes. “We are currently converting a cutting and an audio area, making nine suites from six in both cases,” said managing director Mark Foligno.

Molinare is in the process of purchasing a Quantel Pablo IQ with stereoscopic 3D capabilities from Axis Post.

North One is moving its Audi team into offices on Pentonville Road in London.
