She began her career at the Colossal Pictures as an Art Dept. assistant, where she worked in live-action production, cel, stop motion and CG animation. In 1999 she moved to Industrial Light & Magic, where for the next 12 years she produced VFX for films, including Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Indiana Jones (The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull I). After a brief hiatus, Hornish returns to the production world and will be producing projects for all screens at Bonfire Labs (www.bonfirelabs.com).

Salma began her career at MacKenzie Cutler, a boutique editorial house in New York, as an editorial assistant in 2000 and quickly developed a love for the editorial process.
