Framestore Pre-production Services (FPS) announces its key creative team of industry-leading supervisors, working across previs, techvis, postvis and virtual production.
The team is comprised of: Vincent Aupetit, creative director and senior supervisor (credits include Wonder Woman 1984; Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King Of The Monsters) Kaya Jabar, pre-production supervisor (credits include Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker; Dumbo; Game of Thrones, Tomb Raider), Michelle Blok, visualisation supervisor (two-time Emmy winner; credits include multiple seasons of Game Of Thrones and Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Jon Allen, visualisation supervisor (credits include Hobbs & Shaw; Spider-Man: Far From Home; Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom).
“We’ve brought together a world-class team with extensive knowledge, experience and leadership skills in all aspects of pre-production” says Alex Webster, Framestore’s managing director. “Each supervisor is an expert in their own field, but crucially they see the value in the wider team we’re building at Framestore, where visualisation and virtual production can sit alongside animation, conception, story development and VFX in one creative ecosystem”.
FPS expands and enhances Framestore’s existing capability, allowing clients adaptability and flexibility whether they need standalone pre-production support or a seamless end-to-end solution. The new creative team boasts years of experience across specialisms such as previs, lightweight virtual production, techvis and postvis - creative services that can be seamlessly integrated with Framestore’s VFX and animation pipeline. During lockdown the team have pioneered ways to deliver interactive shot creation and virtual location scouting alongside core previs on multiple shows, ensuring best in class production values and a great and seamless client experience.
“We’ve had a really enthusiastic response to FPS from clients and industry partners, so announcing our key creatives is an exciting next step,” says Framestore’s global managing director of film, Fiona Walkinshaw. “We’ve already lined up some fantastic film and VOD projects for them to lend their skills to, and with physical production currently locked down, we anticipate higher demand for areas like pre-production, concept and visualisation as studios and film-makers work to get their projects onto the starting blocks.”
