Framestore Appoints New Creative Director And VFX Supervisor

News Image
Oscar, Emmy and BAFTA-winning creative studio Framestore has announced Ryan Tudhope as the newest Creative Director and VFX Supervisor to join its film and episodic team.

Tudhope worked as production-side VFX Supervisor on Top Gun: Maverick, delivering faultless supporting VFX for the biggest film of 2022. The film once again soared to the top of the US box office over Labor Day weekend, and is also flying high on VOD as it tops all streaming charts.

Other recent projects to bear his creative stamp include Spiderhead (again working as production-side VFX supervisor alongside director Joseph Kosinski) and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power for Amazon Studios - one of the biggest most hotly-anticipated episodic productions in recent history.

A member of the Television Academy and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, Ryan’s 25-year career as a creative director, visual effects supervisor and entrepreneur has seen him work on more than fifty premiere feature film and episodic projects. He was the co-founder and CEO of VFX studio Atomic Fiction, where he led the studio’s growth to over 350 employees in LA and Montreal. Here he oversaw projects such as Ad Astra, Deadpool, Blade Runner: 2049, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Ghost in the Shell, Game of Thrones, Star Trek Beyond and Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which earned him an Emmy nomination.

Fiona Walkinshaw, Framestore’s Chief Executive Officer, Film & Episodic, said: "Anyone - and I think that must mean everyone by this point - who's seen Top Gun: Maverick knows just how thrilling a cinematic spectacle it is. The forensic attention to detail and absolutely seamless 'invisible' FX work played a huge part in this, and they speak to both Ryan’s creative and technical skill and how he led the Method Studios team from pitch to final pixel. We're delighted to have him join our growing global team, and we can’t wait to be able to talk about his next project."

Ryan Tudhope, Creative Director and VFX Supervisor, said: "Having recently been on a whistlestop tour of Framestore’s London, Montreal and LA studios I’m even more pleased to be joining the team. Framestore is a collaborative, collegiate studio with a focus on learning, development and pushing the creative and technical envelope - exactly the kind of working environment I sought to foster with Atomic Fiction. Whether I was talking to artists, producers or members of the R&D team I encountered a passion for storytelling and innovation, and I couldn’t be happier to be part of such an open and inclusive company."
