Germany’s Mackevision Expands U.K. Team

Stuttgart, Germany-headquartered CG house expands U.K. team led by Mark Gallie with the appointments of EP Caroline Holton, CD Arren Perfetti and production head Dave Weygang.

LONDON -- Stuttgart, Germany-headquartered CG house Mackevision -- with clients including BMW, Mercedes, HBO, VW, Porsche, Embraer, Hyundai, Toyota and Pandora -- is expanding its U.K. management team.

The new team, headed by Mark Gallie, includes Executive Producer Caroline Holton, Creative Director Arren Perfetti, and Head of Production Dave Weygang.

As a worldwide leading provider of first-class 3D visualization, we believe it’s natural that we’re based where the most creative of minds, the best ideas and ground-breaking technical innovations meet,” Mackevision global CEO Armin Pohl commented. “Our office in London allows us to support our premium clients and lead agencies locally in the development and creative implementation of their challenging visual marketing and sales objectives.”

The award-winning company, which now has offices in 10 countries worldwide, develops technological solutions for generating images and produces high-end 3D visualizations, animations and VFX work primarily for the automotive, film and luxury industries. Mackevision oversees the entire CGI process, from data preparation through to creative implementation across all media, which includes image and film material and high-end interactive applications.

Alongside its high-profile automotive work, Mackevision possesses the capability and expertise to branch out from its core market and has worked on the last two seasons of HBO’s Game of Thrones, spending six months creating crowd replications, CG ships with associated water simulations, set extensions and digital environments. Joern Grosshans, Mackevision’s Visual Effects Supervisor, picked up the Emmy award for Outstanding Special and Visual Effects in 2014 for the company’s work on fourth season the hit TV show.
