Mordus FX is a Canadian visual effects studio in Quebec.


Co-founded by Yanick Wilisky and Marc Bourbonnais[1] in 2007, Modus FX is a visual effects company that offers digital production services for film, television and new media. Modus FX has worked on projects for clients such as Marvel Studios, Summit Entertainment, Relativity Media, The Mark Gordon Company, Sony Pictures, Discovery Channel, Warner Bros. Interactive, and The History Channel. Wilisky and Bourbonnais have worked on VFX-driven feature film productions, including the following:[2][3]The Avengers, 300, Mirror Mirror, Sin City, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Snakes on a Plane and the Spy Kids trilogy.

Modus FX signed with International Creative Management ("ICM") one of the world's largest talent and literary agencies. The Montreal studio is the first Canadian postproduction house to be included in the prestigious entertainment agency's roster.[4]

On February 28, 2014, the company, which at the time consisted of 100 staff members, was shut down due to financial problems[5]. According to Wilisky, the company had mismanaged its growth, and that they were never able to restructure themselves. Wilisky would continue to work in the visual effects industry.[6]
