Framestore Welcomes New Compositing Lead

News Image
UK-based visual effects company Framestore has appointed Chris Beers as a new Compositing Lead.

Based in Chicago, Mr Beers will be working across a variety of clients with the Chicago team, as well as diving into Nuke projects of his own.

Mr Beers earned a BFA in Visual Effects & Motion Graphics at The Illinois Institute of Art. Upon graduation he honed his skills as a junior motion graphics artist at Leviathan in Chicago, and has since worked on projects of all sizes.

His experience includes working as an After Effects artist on an expansive projection mapping project for Brazilian musician Amon Tobin's ISAM world tour, and as a Nuke compositor for the title sequences on Marvel films 'Ant-Man', 'Captain America: Civil War', and 'Doctor Strange'. Most notably Chris was lead compositor on the series finale of Netflix science fiction drama 'Sense8', having worked with the team as a Nuke compositor across both seasons of the critically acclaimed show.

Krystina Wilson, Managing Director, Chicago, said: "We are thrilled that after years of freelancing, growing his portfolio across different disciplines, and working on so many noteworthy projects, Chris has chosen Framestore as his permanent home.

"As we recently celebrated our office's official first year and continue to expand, it's talent like Chris that make our studio what it is: a creative hub with a strong sense of community, but the firepower of an integrated, global studio; and an equal combination of longtime Framestore team members and exceptional Chicago-based talent."
