MONTREAL — Bot VFX (www.botvfx.com) recently added Natasha Anne Francis to its team as an executive producer. With a career spanning 30 years and three continents, much of it as a VFX producer, Francis has made the rounds on countless shows, both from the facility side, as well as on the client side. Her credits include Hugo,
Suicide Squad, and
Peter Pan & Wendy, among others.
On the facilities-side, Francis has worked with Framestore, Digital Domain, Scanline, Pixomondo, Animal Logic, and Zoic. Her client-side experience includes work with Fox, Starz and MRC, where she also built on-set experience in both television and film as both a VFX producer and VFX supervisor. She even had exposure to the software side of visual effects, with time at Softimage in Montreal before the company was purchased by Microsoft. In her numerous prior roles, she’s been asked to open new offices and see through infrastructure expansions.
“Adding someone as seasoned and multitalented as Natasha onto our executive producer ranks was central to our growth ambitions,” explains Hitesh Shah, Bot’s CEO & founder. “We couldn’t be more excited about having her on our team as Bot continues to expand in size and capabilities.”
