Visualisation and VFX company, NVIZ, has made internal promotions and new hires to expand its senior team.
“We want our world class talent at NVIZ to be front and centre, developing solid relationships with all our clients so that we can rapidly deliver the tailored services each project requires.” says MD, Luke Kaile. “These hires are the foundation of providing that service, bringing a depth of knowledge and ability from across the industry directly to the disposal of our global clients, wherever they are.”
VFX Producer, David Cordon (Avengers Endgame, Pokémon Detective Pichachu) is on board as Head of VFX Production. Cordon has experience in various different roles inside Production at a range of companies including Scanline, DNEG and Framestore. “I felt an instant connection with the team at NVIZ,” says Cordon, “and a lot of freedom and support, as well as a mutual desire to build something great. Although we plan to expand on 3D in general, we will be focusing on CG Environments during the next couple of years. Our ultimate goal is to establish NVIZ as a reference for quality work and we are taking one step at a time.”
Tamar Chatterjee (Black Panther, Wonder Woman 1984), has joined NVIZ as Head of CG. Chatterjee’s experience comes from years working at Rhythm & Hues and DNEG. “I am excited to join the incredibly talented team at NVIZ at such a significant and pivotal time for technology driven creative companies” says Chatterjee. “I look forward to driving the development of unique ideas, concepts and approaches towards harnessing emerging technologies in the pursuit of effective visual storytelling. I feel especially privileged to be part of an organisation that is just as committed to its people as it is to achieving excellence in our field.”
Mary Stroumpouli (Chernobyl, Interstellar) has joined as VFX Supervisor. Stroumpouli comes to NVIZ with over 15 years of experience in visual effects across several London based facilities, including DNEG and MPC.
In addition to these senior roles, NVIZ has also expanded its ranks with several experienced VFX team members including Lead Compositor, George Palcut (The Crown, Halo), Matchmove Supervisor, Sam Swinnerton (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Matrix Resurrections), Lead Compositor, Fred Place (Batman Begins, The Lion King) and Digital Matte Painter, Lizzie Bentley (The Sandman, Game of Thrones).

Leedham has previously worked at Framestore and Rushes. “I’m delighted to join the NVIZ family.” says Leedham, “The company has always supported a diverse range of ways of working, including a recent move to becoming a hybrid company and 100% remote working for artists, technologists and producers alike. We’re really looking forward to what the next few years bring!”
