Framestore hires Helen Hughes
Framestore is further strengthening its production department by hiring Helen Hughes as senior producer.
Hughes is a heavyweight VFX producer with extensive CG knowledge; she has valuable transatlantic experience, a string of award winning commercials under her belt and an impressive client list.
Hughes began her career as an agency producer at Ogilvy and a production company producer at Outsider Films before moving into postproduction in 2000 via The Mill’s London office. After becoming deputy head of production in 2006, Hughes transferred to the USA to establish The Mill’s LA studio.
Her latest role was as executive producer and director of production for LA-based Method Studios. Hughes’ client list includes Modernista!, TBWA\Chiat\Day, BBDO, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, 180 and Wieden + Kennedy. She has produced VFX for many award-winning campaigns, the most notable of which include: Ivan Zacharias’s Honda Impossible Dream, Dante Ariola’s Johnnie Walker Human and more recently, Guy Ritchie’s Nike The Next Level.
Framestore MD, Helen Stanley, described Hughes as a very talented producer. “She has a wealth of experience, having worked with many A-lister directors and agencies on memorable campaigns,” said Stanley. “She’ll be producing some of our biggest VFX briefs, most of which will involve extensive CG. So she’ll be a real asset to Framestore, especially to our ever-growing CG department.”
