Tom Williams is joining visual entertainment services company DNEG as its new managing director of episodic.
Williams will be based out of the company’s London studio. He has held previous management roles at Sky and Abbey Road Studios, and spent the last five years at MPC, where he held several roles, including managing director, episodic, and most recently president, VFX.
DNEG’s episodic team’s recent credits include Star Trek: Discovery, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, The Last of Us and Citadel.
Williams has been tasked with driving DNEG’s episodic VFX services globally and supporting episodic clients across DNEG and ReDefine, in partnership with the executive teams across both brands.
“This is an exciting time to be joining DNEG, as the company doubles-down on its ambitions in the episodic VFX space to cater to high demand for its industry-leading services,” said Williams.
“Over the last few years, DNEG has established itself as a destination for directors and showrunners who want to create truly spectacular visual experiences. As we explore how we can build on the amazing work that the DNEG Episodic teams are already doing around the world, I look forward to contributing and sharing my experience and insights, and to leading the team to even greater heights.”
