Technicolor London has hired Matthew Bristowe to head its features production team.

He joins Technicolor from his Head of Production role at One of Us, where he led a team through two seasons of Netflix’s The Crown – he was also just nominated for a 2018 Emmy Award for his work producing the VFX for the second season – as well as films, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

His background in production includes nearly two decades of senior management positions, including six years at Prime Focus World, where he oversaw a team of 200 artists and production staff, working on VFX and  the stereoscopic conversion for feature films including, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Gravity.

Prior to Prime Focus, he helped establish a DI department at MPC Film and worked on films including 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, Fantastic Mr Fox and Slumdog Millionaire.

Matthew Bristowe said, “It’s an exciting time to join Technicolor, with so many great projects in the pipeline. I’m looking forward to leading the talented team here and continuing the tradition of delivering world-class post production services to our clients.” 

John Fleming, VP of Post Production & Digital Services, UK says: “Matthew has the ability to bring out the best in people and his calm, methodical approach to production makes him the perfect person to head up the busy production team at Technicolor London."
