Freefolk has added Senior CG Lead Reece Weldon to its team to work across film and episodic projects.
Weldon joins Freefolk from DNEG and his credits include Britannia (Amazon Studios), The Watch (BBC), White Lines (Netflix) and Black Mirror (Netflix).
Weldon will be working with Freefolk’s Head of CG Harin Hirani who comments, “Reece is not only an outstanding talent but a great human-being with a contagious passion for his craft. He is an invaluable addition to us as we continue to grow our longform department.”
Weldon joined DNEG’s graduate scheme after university before working his way up to Senior CG Lead.
Reece Weldon said: “I love the excitement of big scale projects but I’ve always preferred the warm, comforting feeling of a smaller studio. I like to be able to know everyone on the team without feeling too distant and detached from the community. Freefolk has the perfect combination of exciting large scale projects and a family-like feeling amongst the whole crew. Plus they’ve just moved into an amazing new studio in Spitalfields, what’s not to love! I’m really very excited about my new role. For me communication and compassion are the most important things for a lead artist. It really is key to keeping projects and teams on track, it’s vital I make sure each artist is feeling good and positive about what they’re doing. This fits in perfectly with the Freefolk ethos and I am loving being part of the team.”
Freefolk MD/EP, Fi Kilroe said: “We really are over the moon to have Reece at Freefolk. He is a superb 3D talent who has fitted in instantly. Reece has an impressive back catalogue of work but his enthusiasm to nurture talent, be part of a team and create award winning work makes him the perfect fit for us.”
Freefolk Film and Episodic credits include, Fast & Furious 10 (Universal), Napoleon (Sony Pictures Entertainment), Winx (Netflix), Cursed (Netflix) for which they were nominated for a BAFTA Craft Award, The Third Day (Sky / HBO), Pennyworth – Season 2 for Warner Horizon and The Alienist (Paramount) for which they won an Emmy.
