BOURNEMOUTH, UK — Visual effects supervisor Andrew Morley, known for his contributions to Avengers: Infinity War and
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is set to join Outpost VFX as the studio’s head of VFX. He will work with all artists at Outpost VFX’s 80-seat facility in Bournemouth.
In addition to overseeing VFX delivery and supporting Outpost’s team of supervisors, Morley will work closely with the production team to support existing clients and build relationships with new ones.
“I'm thrilled to be joining such a dynamic and forward-thinking VFX company,” says Morley. “Outpost VFX is the definition of a genuinely fresh creative studio, where artists and clients are all storytellers under the same roof. I can’t wait to be involved in the continued growth and development of the entire VFX department, and to help drive Outpost forward as it expands further.”
Morley joins Outpost as the studio gears up for further expansion in order to support growing demand worldwide. Outpost VFX is currently in production on multiple film, broadcast and commercials projects, including Curfew (Tiger Aspect Productions), Three Seconds (The Fyzz Facility) and a major upcoming HBO drama. Some of the studio’s recent projects include Jack Ryan, Final Score, 22 July and Widows.
