Vfx and animation house Coffee & TV has bolstered its creative team with two new hires.

Post production producer Johnny Fairburn will join the senior team as Executive Producer. Coffee & TV’s VFX department has also permanently hired Flame Artist, Rory Whittle.

Following two years at Glassworks as a Producer, Fairburn joined Electric Theatre Collective, where he has worked on top campaigns over the last three years. Whittle began his career as a runner at MPC in 2010, before moving to Smoke & Mirrors, and working his way up from the machine room to Flame Artist. During this time he worked on brands including Fosters, Mitsubishi and Amazon. He was part of the team responsible for the VFX on Mitsubishi’s "The Leader" campaign for the manufacturer’s PHEV hybrid project.

Derek Moore, CEO & Co-Founder Coffee & TV said: “Since we started Coffee & TV we have tried to recruit the nicest and most talented individuals we’ve worked with during our careers. Johnny and Rory were two people we really wanted to bring into the family, because we know they’ll bring their unique qualities to our fantastic team. It’s been such a busy first half of 2018, so we’re working hard to advance our offering and we hope to announce further exciting plans for the studio soon”

Johnny Fairburn, Executive Producer said: “I’ve worked in some of the best VFX companies in town, but Coffee & TV has such a brilliant culture and group of people. I’m super excited to get stuck in.”

Rory Whittle, Flame Artist, said: “Coffee & TV’s VFX department is world class, so I’m looking forward to working with such an incredible team.”
