LONDON — Ryan Tudhope, who worked as a production-side VFX supervisor on Top Gun: Maverick, has joined Framestore (framestore.com) as its newest creative director and VFX supervisor for films and episodics. A member of the Television Academy and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, Tudhope’s 25-year career as a creative director, visual effects supervisor and entrepreneur has seen him work on more than 50 premiere feature films and episodic projects.
He was the co-founder and CEO of VFX studio Atomic Fiction, where he led the studio’s growth to over 350 employees in LA and Montreal. There, he oversaw projects such as Ad Astra, Deadpool, Blade Runner: 2049, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Ghost in the Shell, Game of Thrones, Star Trek Beyond and Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which earned him an Emmy nomination. Other recent projects to bear his creative stamp include Spiderhead, working as production-side VFX supervisor alongside director Joseph Kosinski, and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power for Amazon Studios.
“Having recently been on a whistlestop tour of Framestore’s London, Montreal and LA studios, I’m even more pleased to be joining the team,” says Tudhope. “Framestore is a collaborative, collegiate studio with a focus on learning, development and pushing the creative and technical envelope - exactly the kind of working environment I sought to foster with Atomic Fiction. Whether I was talking to artists, producers or members of the R&D team, I encountered a passion for storytelling and innovation, and I couldn’t be happier to be part of such an open and inclusive company.”
Framestore’s recent work includes Top Gun: Maverick, The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings of Power, Thor: Love and Thunder, The Little Mermaid and Moon Knight, among many others.
