Hot And Hollywood-Bound
Noise Industries

Thanks to tax incentives designed to lure Hollywood movie crews to the Bay State, movie-goers have become more accustomed to seeing shots of the Common or the Pru on the big screen. But while they may not be as immediately recognizable as those landmarks, the visual contributions of local graphics-software company Noise Industries are just as cool. Founded by a pair of BU grads and headquartered in the South End, Noise Industries has launched hundreds of software plug-ins that can be purchased and downloaded through their website. Now they’re being used to create special effects for commercials and even recent blockbuster movies, like Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Avengers. We’re impressed to hear that Noise is causing such a commotion.
