Framestore has named Arek Komorowski as VFX supervisor at its Vancouver studio, where he will work with top directors to determine the best creative and technical approaches for producing visual effects. Having most recently served in the role at Pixomondo, the industry veteran brings over 20+ years of industry experience. His latest projects included Roland Emmerich's sci-fi movie Moonfall.
“We’re thrilled to be welcoming Arek to Framestore,” shared Naomi Stopa, Head of Studio, Vancouver. “Arek is a highly talented and creative mind, and he joins us as we grow and strengthen our Vancouver team.
