News Image
Oscar-winning visual effects company Framestore's new Montreal studio has welcomed new Senior Producer Chloë Grysole to the team.
Madame Grysole, a native Montrealer, joins Framestore after a spell as Eon's Associate VFX Producer on the last year's James Bond film, Skyfall.
She is returning to her homeland after a prominent career in London where she was Cinesite's VFX Producer on the final three Harry Potter films, before making the jump from vendor to client by moving to Eon.
Mme Grysole's first project for Cinesite, Into the Storm, was nominated for a VFX Emmy. In her new post at Framestore, she is currently overseeing VFX for Doug Liman's All You Need is Kill.
She is the newest member of Montreal's leadership team, which is headed by General Manager, Benoit Touchette, Chris Lawrence as Head of CG and Lorna Paterson as Executive Producer.
Framestore's Joint Managing Director of Film, Matt Fox said: "The growth of our Montreal operation has exceeded all expectations. This is testament to the passion, talent and consequent success of our handpicked Montreal team. Opening in the Montreal VFX community in such a positive way has been a fantastic opportunity for all involved."
Chloë Grysole added: "The opportunity to return to my hometown and work on world class VFX was irresistible. Framestore is synonymous with best-in-class film VFX. Being to be able to bring the amazing talent pool in Montreal together with Framestore's experience and world class projects is very exciting."
