Keywords Studios acquires the Hollywood talent outfit Blindlight

Keywords Studios has acquired production services company Blindlight from founder Lev Chapelsky.

Blindlight is a company that specialises in getting games developers and publishers in touch with Hollywood talent.

Its service line-up includes voiceover production, celebrity acquisition and rights management, game writing, music, sound design and motion capture.

Previous clients include Bethesda, NCSoft, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and Ubisoft.

“Keywords and Blindlight have got to know each other well over the past three years and we see good opportunities to leverage both businesses to offer a wider range of world leading services to our clients,” said Keywords CEO Andrew Day.

“We are delighted to welcome Lev and the rest of the team to the Keywords family.

“Following our recent acquisition of music services companies, Cord Worldwide and Laced, we see excellent opportunities for Blindlight to bring these services to Los Angeles, as well as providing access to further opportunities for our downstream production services of translation and localised voice over.”

Keywords’ recent acquisitions include creative and marketing services company Fire Without Smoke, music branding and consulting service Cord Worldwide, record label Laced Music and audio production company Maximal Studio.

The studio recently gained access to more than $120 million to fund further acquisitions.
