A Dallas movie studio is about to unveil its first feature film.
Reel FX in Deep Ellum is releasing an animated Thanksgiving comedy called Free Birds.
The film stars the voices of Dallas native Owen Wilson, as well as Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler.
Reel FX has been producing visual effects for other movies for years. This is the first time the studio has produced its own full length movie.
The company's CEO said the studio's growth is something people around the Metroplex might want to take note of.
"Yeah well, I think they should. We employ 350 people in Deep Ellum and they're all creative and talented and hopeful. Our brand will become a household name like Pixar and Dreamworks and so forth," said Steve O'Brien.
Reel FX wants to release one feature film a year. They're already working on films for next year and the year after.
Free Birds opens across the country in a week.
There's a red carpet premier set for Saturday in north Dallas.
