Important Looking Pirates

Important Looking Pirates is one of Scandinavia's biggest visual effects and digital animation studio located in central Stockholm. Founded by artists in 2007 with the vision to become one of the top international suppliers of VFX in terms of quality, professionalism and service.

We can proudly say that we have assembled one of the best visual effects teams in the business with talents from all corners of the world. All our artists, technicians, producers and support personnel are driven by passion for what we do and we always strive to push the limits of what can be accomplished.

We create content for all forms of digital productions including TV-series, feature film, commercials, VR, web and games. What all our productions have in common is our passion for quality, both in terms of look and the process of getting there. We will help you through the creative and technical production process to ensure that the highest level of quality is delivered on budget and on time!

We are deeply passionate about improving the process by which we do things and we actively strive to perfect all aspects of the company. That work goes far beyond the final picture and affects how we communicate, collaborate, adapt new ideas and technology. We are very proud of what we have achieved so far and we will keep raising the bar to reach our full potential.

Our Services

ILP offers a wide range of creative and technical services that can help you ensure that your production reaches the level of quality it deserves. Together with you we can help plan and execute your productions from concept and storyboard stage all the way to visual effects and post production.

Pre Production

Together with you we can help plan your productions, cutting costs and heightening the end result.

We provide storyboards, animatics, research and development and whatever else the production demands. Our VFX producers and supervisors will go through scripts, treatments and storyboards with you to help identify potential problems in order for you to avoid unnecessary costs and to secure the quality and ease of production.

Concept & Design

We can help you conceptualise your ideas, anything from logo animations to complex creatures and worlds. We will help you regardless if you need a simple drawing or a fully animated design of complex visual effect – we know a dragon or a magical light can be portrayed in many different ways!

On Set Supervision

Our supervisors will make sure to record important data that will make the post production process smoother and more efficient.

Visual Effects & Animation

We do modeling, texturing and look development of props and characters as well as rigging and animation to make them come to life. Particle effects and complex dynamic simulations like smoke, water and fire might also come in handy? We create set extensions or entire digital worlds or – if you wish – make it snow during summer!

Digital Matte Painting

Our digital matte painting artists work in close collaboration with our 3D artists to give you more creative control over your scenes and we also have a team devoted to seamlessly insert elements into your live action footage. 


We offer all of the classic compositing crafts like chroma keying, rotoscope, clean up and rig removal.
