Award-winning visual effects and animation studio Framestore has added two VFX supervisors to its Montreal team: Francois Lambert and Jeremy Robert. The announcement comes as the Montreal office celebrates its 10th anniversary and after delivering several landmark projects like Barbie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and Foundation Season 2.
Lambert brings almost 30 years industry experience, having contributed to iconic film franchises including Star Wars; Harry Potter; Pirates of the Caribbean; Marvel Cinematic Universe; Indiana Jones; James Bond; Star Trek; and Fast and Furious, during his tenure at ILM and more recently, DNEG. Lambert’s accolades include a VES award, three Emmy nominations, two additional VES nominations, and three HPA Award nominations. He has been an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) member since 2017.
“I’ve always admired the work of Framestore, their attention to detail, asset builds, and exceptional animation and creature work,” shared Lambert. “With a reputation as a trusted client partner, solving creative challenges with the imaginative use of technology, Framestore is also known for its collaborative and supportive work culture. I’m looking forward to taking on fresh challenges and working with an ambitious team alongside visionary filmmakers to bring their stories to life.”
Robert’s credits include various VFX-heavy projects, including Blade Runner 2049; X-Men: Apocalypse; and episodics such as Twin Peaks. His recent work includes Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story and Jordan Peele’s Nope. He comes to Framestore from MPC.
“Joining Framestore's tightly connected community of global supervisors and specialists is really energizing,” commented Robert. “The cooperation across studios brings in an exciting mix of talent and expertise, creating incredible opportunities for clients. I’ve admired Framestore from afar for many years, so I'm definitely ready to get started.”
“Every artist brings a distinct set of skills and experiences that enriches the work we create, the relationships we build, and the culture we foster,” explained Framestore managing director, Canada, Film and Episodic Chloe Grysole. “Welcoming Francois and Jeremy to our Montreal team strengthens our ranks with decades of experience and insights, having worked on incredibly complex and creatively challenging features. Alongside our talented teams, I can’t wait to see what they create together.”
