DALLAS - Reel FX Creative Studios Corp. is redeveloping a 73,200-sf facility at 301 N. Crowdus St. in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. The company had been in the building for seven years before deciding to buy the 73,200-sf facility in July 2012.

Reel FX Creative Studios Corp. is wrapping up work this summer on its first feature film, Free Birds, an animated feature voiced by the likes of Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Amy Poehler and Star Trek alum George Takei.

Set for a Nov. 1 release in theaters, the film tells the story of a pair of turkeys who go back in time to try to take their species off the Thanksgiving Day menu.

The City of Dallas estimated the corporate headquarters will have an economic impact of $7.5 million over ten years. As part of the headquarters relocation, the city has given the company an economic development grant of $1.75 million.

The company currently has 325 employees.
