High end post house Goldcrest has launched a new VFX division based in its Lexington Street offices.

The new arm will be headed by industry heavyweight Dolores McGinley, who will now assemble a bespoke team of artists.

Patrick Malone, Goldcrest’s Managing Director, says: “Having been immersed in such a diverse range of projects over the past five years we identified the need to expand into VFX some time ago. We know how essential an integrated VFX service is to our continued success as a leading supplier of creative post solutions to the film and broadcast community.

“As a successful VFX artist in her own right Dolores is uniquely positioned to interpret the client’s brief and offer constructive creative input throughout the production process. She will also draw upon her considerable experience working with colourists to streamline the inclusion of VFX into the grade and guarantee we are able to meet the specific creative requirements of our clients.  We will benefit enormously from Dolores’ energy, quick thinking and inspirational leadership style and could not be happier to have her join our team”

McGinley has over two decades of experience in the industry and joins Goldcrest having held various senior roles within the London VFX community. Recent examples of her work include The Crown, Giri/Haji and Good Omens.

Dolores McGinley says; ”I am passionate about the craft of VFX and to have the opportunity to shape and create a new group within such a prestigious company as Goldcrest is beyond exciting. The calibre of the team is inspirational as are the projects they attract. I can’t wait to get started”
