Cinesite has launched a new visualisation division which will expand its previs, virtual production, techvis and postvis services, and will align with its concept and pipeline departments.

The team behind Cinesite VIS is led by Head of Visualisation Richard Clarke, who joins from NVIZ where he was Head of Postvis.

Cinesite has launched a visualisation division 

Clarke has extensive experience as a VFX Supervisor, CG Supervisor and CFX Supervisor across a diverse range of projects. He will report to Jocelin Capper, Cinesite London’s general manager.

Clarke said: “What we do allows clients to explore a variety of ideas, to bring the pages of a script to life, to inform every step of the film-making process. Together with Cinesite, we will strengthen and extend that creative partnership throughout the entire process, from script to delivery.”

The newly created division is currently working on feature film projects as part of an integrated offering, but will also operate as a standalone visualisation vendor, with more projects slated over the coming months.

Capper added: “With an in-house visualisation (VIS) team, Cinesite will be able to offer end to end solutions for projects. Clients will have the option to place their previs, postvis and VFX under one roof rather than having to wrangle multiple companies over many months. This will provide greater flexibility, consistency and can reduce costs.”

Eduardo Schmidek, also previously from NVIZ, is also joining Cinesite VIS. He is a Visualisation and Real-Time supervisor with more than 20-years’ experience on shows including Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, The Midnight Sky and Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical.
