CHICAGO — Framestore has welcomed Chris Beers to its Chicago team as compositing lead. He will work across a variety of clients, as well as dive into Nuke projects of his own.
Beers got his start in the industry at a young age, finding his passion by working on personal projects. His interests led him to pursue his craft at The Illinois Institute of Art, where he earned a BFA in visual effects & motion graphics. Upon graduation, Beers honed his skills as a junior motion graphics artist at Leviathan in Chicago, and has since worked on projects of all sizes.
Some of Beers’ experience includes working as an After Effects artist on an expansive projection mapping project for Brazilian musician Amon Tobin’s ISAM world tour; and as a Nuke compositor for the title sequences on the Marvel films Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. Most notably, Beers was lead compositor on the series finale of the Netflix science fiction drama Sense8, having worked with the team as a Nuke compositor across both seasons of the show.
“We are thrilled that after years of freelancing, growing his portfolio across different disciplines, and working on so many noteworthy projects, Chris has chosen Framestore as his permanent home,” says managing director Krystina Wilson. “As we recently celebrated our office’s official first year and continue to expand, it’s talent like Chris that make our studio what it is: a creative hub with a strong sense of community, but the firepower of an integrated, global studio; and an equal combination of longtime Framestore team members and exceptional Chicago-based talent.”
