Emmy Award-winning VFX producer brings over two decades experience on projects ranging from ‘Muppet Treasure Island’ to ‘A Discovery of Witches;’ in his new role, he will work directly with clients while overseeing day-to-day operations.
Cinesite London has welcomed Antony Bluff to its leadership team as executive producer. In his new role, Bluff will partner with the London production team to help oversee day-to-day operations while working directly with clients, during and after VFX provision.
An industry veteran with almost 25 years’ experience, Bluff has produced visual effects for a range of worldwide studios. He has worked on projects ranging from Muppet Treasure Island with the Hensons in 1996 through to the second season of A Discovery of Witches for Bad Wolf / Sky. Working client-side with Cinesite in 2009, Bluff was awarded an Emmy for visual effects in HBO's mini-series Generation Kill, which recreated the first 40 days of the Iraq war, as told by an elite group of US Marines.
"I have long respected Cinesite, who have an enduring legacy in the industry in which they have consistently created outstanding work,” commented Bluff. “As part of the group, I want to support their continued evolution into an even greater tour de force, producing exceptional visual effects, inspiring younger generations and providing clients with the quality and service they expect to receive for many more years to come."
"The culture of collaboration, creativity, and service to our studio partners is paramount to our success at Cinesite,” noted Cinesite’s London general manager Melissa Taylor. “Antony has demonstrated that he is committed to the same high standards and goals we have established. I couldn’t imagine a better collaborator to lead our team internally and to interface with our clients.”
