LONDON — VFX supervisor Artemis Oikonomopoulou has joined Cinesite (cinesite.com), here, bringing with her more than 20 years of experience in film. She comes to the London studio after having just completed work on the sci-fi thriller Infinite. Prior to that, she was the visual effects supervisor for Mermaid 2, the sequel to the all-time highest grossing film at the Chinese box office.
Throughout her career Artemis has held various supervisor roles across a range of feature films, including Venom, Thor: Ragnarok, Annihilation and Ant-Man. In June, she was acknowledged for her career contributions by being elected a new member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
“I am excited to re-join Cinesite where I initially started my career,” she says. “I’m looking forward to sharing in its wonderful team culture and contributing to the exceptional work that is being produced here.”
“Artemis’s depth of experience across disciplines and collaborative nature make her a perfect fit,” adds Melissa Taylor, general manager of Cinesite London. “Her talent and expertise will further inspire and empower our talented crew and support our growing roster of work. I am excited for what her Cinesite future holds in advance of a widely predicted surge in VFX demand this year.”
