Framestore promoted Johannes Sambs as Head of CG, based at the company's headquarters in London. Johannes will lead the CG team on a range of projects across Advertising, Episodic and Immersive.
Johannes joined Framestore in 2016, where he has been instrumental in a number of major projects including Framestore’s first dark ride, Pearl Quest for China’s Wanda Group and the technically challenging immersive experience for Comcast’s Philadelphia based planetarium-style theatre, the Universal Sphere. Johannes was also Framestore’s CG Supervisor on Netflix’s ‘Alien Worlds’ which won an Emmy award for the studio. Shortly afterwards, Johannes delivered the Storybook Sequences for Netflix’s ‘Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey’.
“Johannes has experienced the full range of work across the division, and brings an understanding of the creative and technical challenges our teams face day to day,” said Lottie Cooper, Managing Director, Advertising, TV & Immersive. “With his broad range of experience I am excited about him leading the CG team into the next era.”
“I am delighted to embark on this journey as Head of CG,” Johannes Sambs said. “Framestore partners with world-renowned brands and creative studios and the spectrum of the projects we can work on is limitless. I am excited to lead our talented team as we take on even more challenging, ambitious and fresh projects this year and beyond.”
Originally from Austria, Johannes studied Audiovisual Fine Art before moving to the UK where he worked as a CG Generalist Freelancer, mainly in Advertising as well as Theatre Productions. Johannes joined Framestore as a Lookdev Artist and has subsequently worked as both CG supervisor and VFX Supervisor across many forms including commercials, TV shows and feature films including the Sky Atlantic episodic show, ‘Curfew’. www.framestore.com
