Visual effects house Milk VFX has moved into a new studio in London’s Clerkenwell, which will act as a hub for the company’s hybrid working set-up.
The new studio has capacity for 200 artist seats with creative teams coming together at least two days a week in person, and some members of the team remaining fully remote.
Milk’s recent projects include the second season of Amazon’s Good Omens, Netflix film What’s Love Got To Do With It; and Amazon feature Catherine Called Birdy.
The company has also appointed VFX and real-time technology supervisor and virtual production and immersive specialist He Sun (The Lion King; The Mandalorian; The Fear Index😉 who joins from Rebellion Film Studios where he was VFX supervisor and managing director.
He Sun will supervise Milk’s team on NBC’s Surviving Earth alongside VFX Supervisor and Milk co-owner, Jean-Claude Deguara.
Other new appointments include VFX supervisor David Sadler-Coppard (Star Trek: Discovery, Avenue 5); CG supervisor Enrico Selmi (Avengers: Infinity War; Doctor Strange) and head of rigging and creature FX – Will Pryor (Aladdin; Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom).
Milk has also hired award-winning, veteran VFX producer Paul Edwards as head of production (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; Annihilation; No Time to Die).
He is joined by VFX producers Katherine Smith (Maleficent; Game of Thrones), Marie O’Brien (Fate: The Winx Saga; I Used To Be Famous) and Chaya Feiner (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; Paddington).
Sara Bennett, Milk co-owner and VFX supervisor said: “We’re thrilled to have a brand new home and hub for our hybrid working set up in London’s Clerkenwell and to be welcoming such talented new additions to our growing Milk team. This is an exciting time for us all as we deliver a raft of outstanding episodic and feature content.”
