Blockhead VFX appoints Richard Betts as lead flame artist across Auckland + Sydney studios

BETTS.jpgBlockhead VFX has announced the appointment of Richard Betts to the role of lead flame artist across its Auckland and Sydney studios.

Before the completion of his recent 5 year tenure at Fin Design + Effects, Betts completed a seven year stint at world renown post production facility "The Mill" London. Over recent months, Betts has had the pleasure of working with some of Australia's most talented directors including; Steve Rodgers, Simon Mcquoid and Paul Middleditch.

Says Stefan Coory, co-founder, Blockhead: "I have been wanting to work with Richie again since our days together at The Mill London and am absolutely thrilled to have him join the team. Not only is Mr Betts a world class talent.. he may just be one of the most affable gents in the business. His portfolio speaks for itself, I feel it speaks volumes to the level of craft and passion he puts into every project."

Blockhead has continued to quietly expand its offering to Australasia over the last few months with a number of additional hires, including the much loved senior producer Dawn Walker fresh from Alt.VFX late last year.


Bobby Gentry said:

I worked with Betts when he first came to Auckland and worked at DigiPost, a really nice fellow.
