The Halcyon Company

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


The Halcyon Company was founded in 2006 in Los Angeles by Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson; Halcyon's first production was the short Cook Off!. In May of the following year, they acquired the rights to the Terminator franchise from C2 Pictures, which went dormant and ultimately was dissolved the following year. That November, the company started a game subsidiary, Halcyon Games, to make a video game based on what would prove to be the company's only film from a major studio, Terminator: Salvation.

In August 2009, despite making a healthy profit from the film, they declared bankruptcy as a response to a lawsuit from their financier due to payment problems[1], and sold the rights to StudioCanal. Halcyon released another non-Terminator production before dissolving altogether in 2013; starting with Terminator: Genisys, the Terminator movies have been produced by Skydance Media.
