Proof bolsters its international presence in Europe and Australia.
Proof Inc. is actively bolstering its international presence. The announcement was made by Ron Frankel, Proof 's founder and Creative Director.
Proof Australia is the new name for the company’s production facility in Sydney, Australia. The facility is currently working on Gods of Egypt, directed by Alex Proyas. Prior to the formal opening of an Australia office, Proof had worked in that country on earlier films which included I Frankenstein, The Ruins, and Charlotte’s Web.
Proof’s activities in Europe have also increased. Proof London, now in its second year of operation, recently completed Postvis on Captain Phillips, and an extensive Previs project for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Proof London is currently involved with the upcoming adaptation of Frankenstein and Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. films.
Last year, Proof London, spearheaded by company Creative Director Pawl Fulker, made contributions to World War Z, Skyfall, and Fast & Furious 6. Proof London is a full service visualization house, providing the highest levels of Previs and Postvis to the UK feature film and entertainment markets.
Fulker has been a driving force in the UK pre-visualisation market since its inception. He first used Previs in his role as a computer animator and VFX supervisor in high end commercials, then made the move into feature film Previs with the first of the Harry Potter movies, supervising for VFX luminary Robert Legato. Since then, he has supervised Previs for some of the biggest directors working in the UK film industry, including Alfonso Cuaron, Sam Mendes, Guy Ritchie, Marc Forster and Joe Wright.
In Canada, Proof has additional facilities in Montreal and in Vancouver.
“By expanding our international presence, we’ve created a global infrastructure that allows us to move with our clients, no matter where they go,” said Mr. Frankel. “Our goal has always been to provide the highest quality visualization services to the feature film industry. Our expansion into Europe, and now Australia, allows us to operate globally and work locally.”
