Veteran VFX Producer joins Outpost’s Bournemouth team.
U.K.-based Outpost VFX announced that Sarah Mooney has joined the team as VFX producer. With a huge amount of production experience, working especially in the high-end TV market, she has relocated to the seaside town of Bournemouth from London where she was line producer in Double Negative’s TV department.
She will immediately start working on ITV Studios’ upcoming four-part thriller Bancroft, which explores what happens when long buried crimes come back to haunt us. The drama written by Kate Brooke (Mr. Selfridge, Ice Cream Girls, The Making of a Lady) is currently filming on location in and around Bolton and the North West. Outpost are delighted to be working with producer Phil Collinson (Midwinter of the Spirit, Coronation Street, Dr. Who) and director John Hayes (Vera, Home Fires).
“Sarah will be using her expertise and particular understanding of TV VFX to help grow Outpost’s work in this field,” says Outpost VFX managing director, Danny Duke. “Her specific knowledge and experience in this area will be invaluable as we expand and take on a growing number of exciting projects.”
“I was easily drawn to Bournemouth to join the Outpost team, not solely for the coastal life, but also because of the perfect combination of high quality projects and great people,” says Mooney. “With Duncan, Danny and Gez I met very likeminded people with the same ethics, drive and passion for a true work-life balance. I am very excited to develop their broadcast TV slate for the year ahead and of course enjoy lunch breaks on the beach.”
Hailing from Dublin, Mooney started out as a freelance offline editor working on corporate and heritage projects. From there she moved to Canada and spent seven years working at a variety of production companies as a post-production supervisor delivering projects for broadcasters such as Nat Geo, History, Disney and PBS.
Her credit list includes Game of Thrones (HBO), Ripper Street (BBC), Emerald City (NBC), Fungus The Bogeyman (Sky) and Roald Dahl's Esio Trot (BBC).
