Blockhead VFX opens Sydney studio

5 (1).jpgVFX specialists Blockhead have officially opened the doors to its state of the art studio in Sydney.

Breathing new life into the old "Albury Hotel" in Paddington, this iconic pub on Oxford Street now houses Blockhead's premium flame and grading suites along with character spaces for the compositing and CG teams and the burgeoning film department.

Blockhead was formed in Auckland by co-founders and creative directors, Nigel Mortimer and Stefan Coory after returning from London and New York where they were lead artists at MPC and The Mill respectively.
13 (1).jpgOverseen by MD Josephine Mckenzie (ex The Editors, The Mill), advertising local Greg Fyson has joined the existing stable of excellent producers as EP. With his extensive knowledge of both production and agency worlds Fyson brings a real symbiosis to the7.jpg whole process.

Says Mortimer: "We are so lucky to have Greg on board. Alongside his many producing skills and penchant for a cheeky pint he will make an excellent translator for that New Zealand and Australian language barrier."

Having many great relationships already in Sydney it is an obvious next step for the boutique studio. It also gives Blockhead a unique offering to the many production companies, agencies 9 (1).jpgand clients doing Trans-Tasman work. They have both Auckland and Sydney operating virtually as one studio so it eliminates the tyranny of distance.

Recent Blockhead projects include the creation of Paul Middleditch's "Dave the Goose" for Air NZ, Tim Bullock's fire spewing "Scortchy" the Jemena Dragon and Nick Balls 11.jpgface bitingly good snake for iSelect.
