Framestore’s LA operation has opened for business.

Framestore co-founder and chief executive William Sargent said: “We’re a flexible company, where talent from different locations comes together on larger projects, which means we have a greater capacity to explore areas of innovation like real-time CG and second-screen opportunities.”

The studio in Culver City will be led by creative director Aron Hjartarson, senior flame and VFX supervisor Alex Thomas, with Kati Haberstock as executive producer, Ben West as head of CG and Mary Nockles as producer.
