As well as creatively contributing to features including District 9 and The Matrix, Murphy has been involved with and led the development of pipelines across all departments in VFX.  With his experience in key VFX software, scripting and programming, Murphy “looks to drive innovation, new VFX methodologies and tech at Axis Studios.”

Stephen Murphy said, “Axis is in a unique position with all the great work on the animation side of things. It will be great to collaborate with them across a range of VFX projects in the future.”

Director of VFX, Nick Drew, said “Stephen has vast experience working for various world-leading VFX studios and he brings that knowledge with him to Axis. With a keen interest in new tech and machine learning, his natural creativity and contributions as a storyteller can only add to the team. On a wider view, hiring Stephen is also a statement of intent for the type of crew we here at Axis are looking to acquire, to further establish the studio as a creative hub that produces interesting projects across a range of feature and TV projects.”
