Oscar-winning creative studio Framestore announced today the appointment of Thomas Montminy Brodeur as VFX supervisor to further bolster the company’s episodic offering under New York managing director, Charles Howell.
With 15 years of industry experience, Thomas will be charged with developing methodologies and maintaining high-end image quality across a variety of episodic projects.
“Thomas is a holistic problem-solver of the highest calibre, capable of delivering amazing images,” said Charles. “The four seasons of experience on Game of Thrones, in addition to the countless other shows he’s worked on, has equipped him with the expertise to lead teams with a strategic mindset. We’re thrilled to welcome him to Framestore in New York as part of our exceptional episodic department.”
Joining Framestore from Rodeo FX in Montreal, Thomas spent the last decade in the roles of digital compositor, digital compositing supervisor, and most recently VFX supervisor on primetime shows such as 'Black Sails', 'Crawl' and 'Watchmen'. He also worked on 'Game of Thrones' (seasons four to seven), during which time he acted as compositing supervisor for seasons six and seven.
Thomas began his career at Framestore in London as a paint and roto artist working on films such as 'Where the Wild Things Are', 'Avatar' and 'Sherlock Holmes'.
“Many years ago, Framestore gave me my first shot at a dream job,” said Thomas. “The opportunity to be back with such an incredible team, pushing the limits of what we are capable of as a company and an industry is extremely exciting to me.”
Thomas claims a host of industry awards, including a VES Award for Outstanding Environment in a photoreal episode for 'Game of Thrones', as well as a Giant Screen Cinema Association (GSCA) Award for Best Visual Effects. He graduated from Collège Mérici in Quebec City with a diploma in Multimedia, an AEC degree in Visual Effects Compositing at Institut Grasset.
Discovering his passion of imparting knowledge and skills to the next generation of artists, he has also taught Compositing at Institut Grasset, l’Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) and O'Sullivan College of Québec. Moreover, he later earned an Undergraduate Certificate in 3D for Visual Effects from UQAT to further build his skillset and understanding across departments in order to produce the best solutions for clients.
