Framestore Adds To Team

News Image
Creative studio Framestore has announced the appointment of a new Executive Producer, Film. With 25 years' experience as a producer, James Whitlam joins the team.

He has worked across a range of feature films (such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), television and commercials, and was recently the co-chair of the Australian section of the Visual Effects Society, and a member of the AACTA visual effects branch.

Whitlam's career in VFX commenced in 1991 as a runner at New York Production & Design. More recently he was instrumental in building Rising Sun Pictures into a top-tier boutique visual effects vendor, externally as their Executive Producer and internally as a member of the senior management team, over a nine year tenure.

Bringing the creative side of producing to his role at Framestore, Whitlam said: "I love things that seem impossible. Creativity is not limited to the rendered image; you have to visualise everything before it's even been shot. Scheduling, negotiating, strategising – these are not tasks one can do well without imagination."

Matt Fox and Fiona Walkinshaw, Joint MDs of Film, added: "We are very pleased to welcome James to the senior production team in Film at Framestore. He has a great track record in managing large-scale VFX projects for well-known clients and we are looking forward to adding his expertise to our fantastic team of VFX Producers."
