Framestore Strengthens Montreal Studio

News Image
Framestore has followed up a period of rapid growth and expansion with four new appointments at its Montreal studio.

The appointments are across the creative, support and production departments, all of which will help support the company for its biggest slate of film and TV projects yet.

Head of FX Kevin Mah joins the team from MPC, where he oversaw FX for a number of high profile films - including the Oscar-winning '1917'. His knowledge, expertise and creativity will prove crucial for Framestore's growing portfolio of FX-heavy work, as evidenced by recent titles such as zombie-heist sensation 'Army of the Dead', alien invasion actioner 'The Tomorrow War' and the VES Award-winning 'Project Power'. 

The studio has also expanded its pool of talented producers, with two key hires. VFX Producer Wassila Lmouaci rejoins Framestore after five years at RodeoFX, where she worked on titles such as 'Lovecraft Country' S1 and 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'. VFX Producer Marie-Ève Authier joins the team from Mr. X, where she most recently oversaw 'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil'. On the support side, Sandra Najem takes on the role of Head of HR, bringing with her over a decade of experience in the field. The diversity of these high-profile roles showcases the depth of talent from which the Montreal studio draws, as well as the wide range of opportunities for those seeking to make their mark on the global film and TV industries.

Chloe Grysole, Managing Director, Film, said: "This past year has been a huge challenge for the industry, so it's a testament to the strength and resilience of our team that we've been able to deliver amazing, high-profile projects from home and emerge from the pandemic with our biggest, busiest slate of projects yet. As well as hiring across the board to meet demand we're also proud of what we offer in terms of training and mentorship to help our existing team level up and develop. While it's been a time of huge change - I don't think anyone would have thought working from home would be an option for two years, but it's now very much part of life for the foreseeable future at Framestore - it's also a period that has helped us grow, learn and innovate."
