Visual effects studio Framestore has appointed production supervisor Gary Brozenich. After 22 years at MPC and having established his reputation on box office blockbusters Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, The Lone Ranger, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and two instalments of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Gary strengthens the studio’s roster of supervision talent.
“The strength of the team and reputation as a great place to work is what brings me to Framestore with a shared belief in the power of the craft to create truly remarkable images,” said Gary. “Framestore has scale while also having been judicious in its approach to growth, fostering teams and talent along the way to deliver exceptional work that I know clients, as well as myself, admire. With the capacity to deliver blockbuster projects and ability to shepherd shows from pre-production to post alongside some serious technical expertise, I’m ready to join the team.”
Passionate about the possibilities of the craft, Gary is driven toward complex creative and technical challenges and believes his training in fine art and early career as a sculptor and model maker informs his approach. A three time collaborator of Ridley Scott, working on Kingdom of Heaven, The Last Duel and All the Money in the World, he has also worked twice with Joachim Rønning on Disney blockbusters Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge.
He has also supervised for Gore Verbinski (The Lone Ranger), Ron Howard (The Davinci Code) and Tim Burton (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street). Most recently Gary worked with Director Steven Caple Jr to bring depth and clarity of character to the Autobots in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
He will now work alongside Framestore’s senior team of supervisors who have delivered Oscar & BAFTA winning or nominated work such as Gravity, Blade Runner 2049, Christoper Robin, The Midnight Sky, Top Gun: Maverick, No Time to Die, The Dark Knight, Guardians of the Galaxy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 1, His Dark Materials as well as this year’s hits Barbie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 and The Little Mermaid. He will report in to CEO of Film & Episodic, Fiona Walkinshaw.
“While our industry is experiencing significant change we are making preparations to help our clients get back to business,” Fiona said. “Gary is highly regarded by the studios, a valuable collaborator and creative problem solver and someone I have been keen to work with for a long time. His appointment buoys an already accomplished team of supervisors and follows two senior hires in Montreal last month. www.framestore.com
