BOURNEMOUTH, UK — Fay Hancocks has joined Outpost VFX as VFX producer, in charge of supporting the studio’s output across feature film, high-end TV and commercials. Previously working at MPC and Double Negative, Hancocks has produced VFX for major feature films, including Star Trek: Beyond, Total Recall and
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
In her new role, Hancocks will be tasked with nurturing Outpost VFX’s close creative relationships with clients, as well as helping to further the studio’s vision for fairer treatment and better working conditions in post production.
“Fay’s experience is really valuable and will add even more strength to our world-class production team as we continue to grow and develop in 2018,” says Gez Hixson, head of production at Outpost VFX. “As demand for our services increases we have brought in yet another producer who’s very much at the top of her game to help lead us into the next stage of Outpost’s progression. We are really excited to have Fay with us and I’m looking forward to seeing her advance our offering to clients.”
Hancocks graduated from Bournemouth University’s National Centre for Computer Animation in 2008 before working her way up through the production ranks at MPC and Double Negative in London and Vancouver.
“I’m super excited to join Outpost VFX,” she states. “The investment in their teams and technology is extremely forward-thinking, and the quality of work they’re producing is superb.”
Her appointment follows the addition of producers Andy Burrow, who joined from LipSync in late 2017, and Josh Sykes, who joined Outpost VFX from ILM in the summer of 2017. The studio is only five years old, but has grown from one person with a laptop into an 80-seat, full-service facility. Some of their recent work includes VFX for 47 Meters Down, Life, Nocturnal Animals, Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams and The Mercy.
