VFX Supervisor Francois Dumoulin Joins Framestore’s Team in Montreal

VFX supervisor François Dumoulin has joined the talented team at Framestore’s Montreal studio. He is the latest high-level creative to join the company’s Canadian team, which had been bolstered by six further talented VFX supervisors joining across Vancouver and Montreal.

François joins from Rodeo FX, with recent high-profile credits including DuneThe Sandman and Loki. His experience encompasses on-set and in-house supervision, and his exquisite work has been recognized with Emmy and VES Award nominations (both for Misha Green’s Lovecraft Country), as well as a place on the 2018 Oscar shortlist for his work on Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

Dumoulin joins a roster of exceptional, Canada-based VFX supervisors that has grown by some 50% since the start of the year. His appointment follows the integration of Method Studios’ film and episodic teams in Vancouver and Montreal – a move which saw VFX supervisors Phil Brennan (Thor: Love & Thunder; Hobbs & Shaw; X-Men: Dark Phoenix), Christian Emond (Ms. Marvel; The Witches; Doctor Sleep) join Framestore’s Montreal studio, while Pete Dionne (Thor: Love & Thunder;  Pokémon Detective Pikachu; Passengers), Mathew Krentz (For All Mankind s1-3; The Many Saints Of Newark), Sean Schur (The Boys; Deadpool 2; Annihilation) and Ross McCabe (Thor: Ragnarok; A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting; Ford v Ferrari) represent the Vancouver studio’s creative leadership.

“It’s no secret that Canadian VFX talent is in hot demand at the moment, and when you look at the collective resumes of François, Phil, Christian, Pete, Mathew, Sean and Ross you can see precisely why,” says Chloe Grysole, Freamstore’s MD Canada, Film & Episodic. “Between them they have an incredible wealth of creativity, knowledge and expertise, from working on-set with top directors to delivering stunning final images for award-winning features and episodic projects. It’s a pleasure to welcome them all to Framestore, and we can’t wait to see their work on screen.”

Framestore’s recent and upcoming titles include 1899, Top Gun: Maverick, Paddington in Peru, The Little Mermaid, Moon Knight, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, Elvis, Slumberland, His Dark Materials s3, Ms. Marvel, The School For Good And Evil, The Wheel Of Time s2, Peter Pan And Wendy, Spiderhead, The Sandman, Thor: Love And Thunder and Men.
