CHICAGO — Framestore has added Larissa Berringer to its Chicago team as business development manager. The Midwest office — Framestore’s third in the US — is celebrating its first year of operation.
Berringer (left) is an experienced multimedia producer, with significant credits gained across film, television and advertising. Her career kicked off on the set of the hit Showtime series Weeds, where she worked alongside show creator Jenji Kohan. Making her move into the VFX industry, Berringer joined Vitamin Pictures in Chicago where, as executive producer, she handled projects for a wealth of clients spanning ad agencies, Fortune 500 companies, and accomplished directors.
She later moved to produce at The Mill, and now joins Framestore to foster client and creative relationships across the company’s vibrant advertising business.
Framestore’s Chicago office also welcomed senior producer Cat Pavitt (right) into the fold. She joins the office direct from Framestore’s London operation, where she spent the past seven years at the core of the company’s advertising VFX business, producing work for a long list of both household and luxury brand names.
“As we enter our second year and continue to expand, it is critical for us to maintain the balance of Framestore ‘born and bred’ stars with Chicago-based talent,” says Krystina Wilson, managing director in the Chicago location. “Larissa’s breadth of knowledge, reputation within the Chicago community, and her strategic thinking as to how we grow, as a both a creative studio and innovation company, all make her invaluable to our team.
“Cat’s innate skills and passion as a producer are the perfect complement to Larissa’s joining; her demeanour with both clients and artists alike has made her beloved across the company, and we are thrilled to have her in Chicago to join this already stellar production team.”
