Bristol and Glasgow-based visual effects studio AxisVFX has expanded with two new hires.

Joe Thornley Heard has joined the studio from Double Negative where his credits include Hercules: The Thracian Wars, Thor: The Dark World and Total Recall.

“Joe will head up our FX team using his experience on some of Hollywood’s biggest films to provide our clients with feature quality effects,” said Axis founder and vfx supervisor Grant Hewlett.

Alongside Thornley Heard, London based executive producer Laetitia Beaujard Ramoo has joined the Axis business working with both the vfx and animation studios.

Ramoo has previously worked as an executive producer and in production roles at the Mill, Passion Pictures and BUF Compagnie.

“Laetitia will be dedicated to establishing strong relationships with new and existing clients for our visual effects and animation business, and alongside Howard and Grant, Laetitia will ensure we provide the most creative and effective solutions to get our clients ambitious scripts on screen,” said Axis managing director Richard Scott.

The company was established over twelve months ago by visual effects supervisors Grant Hewlett and Howard Jones and has since worked on projects including Doctor Who, Wizards versus Aliens, Shaun the Sheep the Movie, The Creator and new BBC show Eve.

“This first year has gone beyond our expectations” said 2d vfx supervisor Howard Jones.

“We have delivered on a broad range of projects from high-end invisible compositing, to drama and children’s shows for the BBC and our work on Doctor Who has had us pushing the boundaries for VFX in television.”

“We have pulled together a great team and developed a pipeline serving up high quality work to international clients.”

The boutique visual effects studio operates from The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol and a new bespoke studio in Glasgow.
