NEW YORK CITY — Creative VFX boutique Artjail (www.artjail.com) in Chinatown has added Christoph Schröer as VFX supervisor. Previously a VFX supervisor/senior compositor at The Mill, Schröer brings over a decade of experience, including an eye for design in VFX. His work has been featured in spots for brands such as Mercedes Benz, Visa, Volkswagen, Samsung, BMW, Hennessy and Cartier, among numerous others.
“The team at Artjail brings a collaborative, boutique approach to every project that they work on and their work is consistently top notch,” says Schröer. “I’m looking forward to working with their talented lineup of artists and producers to continue to elevate the output of creative work.”
Fusing together a knack for computer technology and a passion for graffiti design, Schröer applied his degree in computer and media sciences to begin his career in VFX. He cut his teeth in VFX at some of the biggest shops in Germany and Switzerland, catching the eye of a wide range of European auto clients with his natural eye for technical design and precision. His credits from his tenure in the European market include lead compositor for multiple Mercedes-Benz spots, two global Volkswagen campaign launches, and BMW’s Rev Up Your Family.
In 2016, Schröer made the move to New York to take on a role as senior compositor and VFX supervisor at The Mill. There, he teamed with notable directors, such as Tarsem Singh and Derek Cianfrance, and worked in leading VFX roles on campaigns for Hennessy, Nissan Altima, Samsung, Cartier and Visa.
