Fenwick Represents Wonder Dynamics in Acquisition by Autodesk

Fenwick represented Wonder Dynamics, makers of Wonder Studio, a cloud-based 3D animation and VFX solution that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with established tools, in its acquisition by Autodesk, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSK), an application software company.

Autodesk’s acquisition of Wonder Dynamics will give more creators the ability to add 3D animated characters to their projects and stories while minimizing the learning curve and automating typically complex and time-consuming processes. The acquisition of Wonder Dynamics is also another strategic step toward supporting Autodesk’s long-term mission to unbridle creativity by connecting teams, data and processes with Flow, the Media & Entertainment industry cloud on Autodesk’s Design and Make platform.
