Cinesite Wins VFX Work For World War Z

Leading film visual effects house Cinesite has been awarded a significant amount of shots on the upcoming Paramount Pictures' World War Z.
Directed by Marc Forster and starring and produced by Brad Pitt, the film is based on the post-apocalyptic horror novel by Max Brooks and is due for release in 2012.
Ten years after the human victory over the worldwide zombie epidemic referred to as World War Z, Max Brooks (Pitt) scours the world collecting the stories and experiences of those who have survived the conflict that almost eradicated humanity.
Cinesite Visual Effects Supervisor Matt Johnson will lead Cinesite's work on the film and will work closely with Production Visual Effects Supervisor John Nelson whose credits include The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Iron Man, I, Robot, The Matrix Revolutions and The Matrix Reloaded.
Antony Hunt, Managing Director of Cinesite, said: "We're very excited to have been awarded such a significant portion of visual effects for this highly anticipated movie. With our work on Battle: Los Angeles and Generation Kill, we've proven our ability to create scenes of epic destruction and realistic character animation. We can't wait to do it again for World War Z."
Additionally, Cinesite are on the look out for talented artists to join their expanding team. The list of current job roles can be found at:
