Framestore And CFC Unite
FrameStore, specialists in visual effects and computer animation for commercials, film and broadcast television, and Computer Film Company (CFC), renowned for its award-winning digital film effects, as well as pioneering development in digital film, have merged. The newly rebranded company is named Framestore CFC and will be led by a single management team, headed by joint chief executives Sharon Reed and William Sargent. The 240 staff positions and the senior management team remain unchanged. Recently the new company completed numerous commercial campaigns, as well as delivering the series' WALKING WITH BEASTS and LOST WORLD for the BBC and completing feature work on HARRY POTTER, THE MUMMY RETURNS and CAST AWAY. Currently the company is at work on the HARRY POTTER sequel and other feature films and various commercial campaigns.
Before FrameStore went WALKING WITH BEASTS, they were WALKING WITH DINOSAURS. Eric Huelsman hailed the series as one of the most scientifically significant technological benchmarks in broadcast television. Read why.
