DNEG has just appointed Oscar and BAFTA-winning industry veteran Guillaume Rocheron as Visual Effects Supervisor. He will work out of the company’s Los Angeles studio. His production VFX supervisor credits include Jordan Peele’s Nope, Sam Mendes’ 1917, Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and Rupert Sanders’ Ghost in the Shell. Rocheron most recently oversaw the visual effects work for Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Bardo: False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths, which will release December 16 on Netflix.
Rocheron’s accolades include an Academy Award and a BAFTA Award in 2020 for his work on 1917. Before that, he received an Academy Award, a BAFTA, and a Visual Effects Society (VES) Award for his work on Ang Lee’s critically acclaimed Life of Pi.
“I’ve known and admired Guillaume for many years, and he is a unique talent in our business,” said Namit Malhotra, DNEG Chairman and CEO. “As a widely respected and highly admired supervisor, Guillaume has produced some extraordinary work over the course of his career - from the technical achievements of 1917 to the futuristic world-building of Ghost in the Shell, to the sheer range of techniques and disciplines on display in Nope, he is a supervisor who always pushes the envelope and knows how to get the very best from his teams. 2023 will be a thrilling year for DNEG, with some big opportunities on the horizon, and I am excited to have Guillaume onboard as part of our senior creative team to help chart the course for DNEG through next year and beyond.”
“It’s been incredible to see how DNEG has evolved over the last few years and to see how Namit and his team have been transforming the company into a home for filmmakers to create amazing visual effects,” added Rocheron. “I am excited to embark on this collaboration with DNEG’s outstanding artists, engineers, and technicians and to join a global team that includes so many outstanding supervisors. DNEG’s filmmaker-oriented mentality, focus on innovation, and commitment to its people are all very appealing to me, and I am looking forward to exploring further opportunities for close collaboration with some of the world’s most visionary filmmakers.”
