GARY BROZENICH JOINS FRAMESTORE.
29 October 2023

Framestore have brought Gary Brozenich on board as their new VFX Supervisor in London. A former sculptor and model maker, Brozenich's credits include 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts', 'Edge of Tomorrow', and 'The Lone Ranger', which earned him and his team an Oscar nomination in 2014.

So what drew Brozenich to Framestore in 2023? "The strength of the team and reputation as a great place to work is what brings me here, with a shared belief in the power of the craft to create truly remarkable images.

"Framestore has scale whilst having been judicious in its approach to growth, fostering teams and talent along the way to deliver exceptional work that I know clients, as well as myself, admire. With the capacity to deliver blockbuster projects and ability to shepherd shows from pre-production to post alongside some serious technical expertise, I'm ready to join the team."

That's music to the ears of Framestore CEO of Film & Episodic, Fiona Walkinshaw, who says: "Gary is highly regarded by the studios—a valuable collaborator and creative problem solver and someone I have been keen to work with for a long time. His appointment buoys an already accomplished team of supervisors and follows two senior hires in Montreal last month."

Walkinshaw, who's helped steer the company through the coronavirus pandemic and the Hollywood strike, adds: "While our industry is experiencing significant change, we are making preparations to help our clients get back to business." Hires like Brozenich suggest they're on the right track.
