MONTREAL — Framestore (www.framestore.com) has appointed Marc-André Larose as studio manager of its immersive department in Montreal. His management skills and extensive knowledge of the gaming industry have been honed over several years in at studios that include Hibernum, Eidos Montreal and EA Mobile. He joined Framestore in 2017 as senior producer and has made an impact both locally and across Framestore’s global offices.
“It’s a privilege to be taking on this new role and I‘m looking forward to maintaining the team’s drive for top quality products and collaborating with the studio’s award-winning film division”, says Larose.
“In addition to his great experience in the world of games companies, Marc-André brings a new energy and commitment to the team in Montreal at a time of consolidation of its rapid growth,” says Chloë Grysole, managing director of the Montreal studio.
“He’ll play a key role in pushing Framestore's artistry and innovation in developing brand and IP experiences,” adds Helen Stanley, global managing director of integrated advertising.
The Montreal team has worked on a number of virtual reality experiences, including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them for Warner Bros., which was awarded a Cannes Lion in 2018. The team is working on several large projects that will launch later in the year.
