During these difficult times, it’s great to hear that Framestore in London has further beefed up its staff. Three new hires will join the VFX studio’s entire workforce (approximately 2,500 people) working from home at the moment.
Two-time VES Award-winner Graham Page joins the company as VFX supervisor after 14 years with Dneg, where he supervised the company’s work on titles such as Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel and Avengers: Infinity War. He brings Framestore’s tally of VFX supervisors to 24 — all of whom from pre-production to on-set supervision through to the final delivery.
Mark Hodgkins, who rejoins the company after a 12-year stint with Dneg, will serve as Framestore’s global head of FX, film, and brings with him technical knowledge and extensive experience working on properties from Marvel, DC and J.K. Rowling.
Anna Ford joins Framestore as head of business development, film. Formerly sales and bidding manager at Cinesite, Ford brings knowledge of the global production industry and a passion for emerging technologies that will help identify and secure exciting projects that will push and challenge Framestore’s team of creative thinkers.
“While working in different areas of the company’s business, Graham, Anna and Mark all share the kind of outlook and attitude we’re always looking for at Framestore. They’re forward-thinking, creative in their approaches and never shy away from the kind of challenges that will bring out the best in themselves and those they work with,” says Fiona Walkinshaw, Framestore’s global managing director, film.
