LOS ANGELES — Outpost VFX has appointed Jeremy Fernsler VFX supervisor in Los Angeles. Fernsler has 15 years of visual effects experience and is known for his Emmy-nominated work as VFX supervisor on the third season of Westworld, as well as Star Trek: Picard and Marvel’s Runaways.
The appointment follows Outpost VFX’s recent announcement that it’s opening a Los Angeles facility in Burbank this summer to complement its existing sites in Bournemouth, UK, and Montreal, Canada. Outpost’s credits include visual effects for News of the World (Universal), The Green Knight (A24) and The Pursuit of Love (Amazon). It is currently in production on projects that include The Wheel of Time (Amazon), Foundation (Apple) and Slumberland (Netflix).
In his new position, he will work with directors, producers and showrunners to deliver premium visual effects for film and episodic productions. He will collaborate closely with managing director Andy Williams to expand the Outpost VFX team and its LA pipeline.
“I came to Outpost because of the great work they’ve done, the amazing people and their commitment to pursuing a better culture and work/life balance,” says Fernsler. “I’m excited to help launch our first US studio in Los Angeles, continue to add to our great team, and work with our clients in LA and further afield to complement their productions with quality visual effects.”
Prior to joining Outpost, Fernsler spent nearly four years at Dneg in Los Angeles, working on high-end California-incentivized shows, such as Star Trek: Discovery. He then moved into Dneg’s virtual production department, helping to establish forward-thinking virtual production workflows to benefit the company’s global studios. Fernsler also spent over four years as an educator in VFX, games and animation at Drexel University in Pennsylvania, helping to develop the careers of emerging talent in computer graphics.
