The Mill London has made Greg Spencer and Richard De Carteret its new Joint Heads of 2D.
Both have been at The Mill for over a decade.
De Carteret joined The Mill back in 1999 as a runner, moving into Flame before joining The Mill New York in 2002. After returning to the London studio, he became one of the leading artists in the 2D team. His recent credits include Shell ‘Trackmaster’ and Absolute ‘Nothing to Hide’, as well as spots for Barclays, Burberry and the British Red Cross. He has worked with Damien Hirst on a film which was projected during U2’s performance at Glastonbury. He has also made it into the Guinness World Book of Records for his work on Toshiba ‘Time Sculpture’ back in 2008. The project was officially recognised for having the most moving image cameras used in a composite film shot.
Spencer joined The Mill in 2006. As a Lead 2D Artist he has worked on some of The Mill’s key recent projects including VW ‘The Button’ and O2’s ‘Follow the Rabbit.’ He also played an integral role in Mill Film. He was the 2D Supervisor for Les Miserables and also worked on the Lord of The Rings Trilogy. He has also worked on campaigns for high-profile brands such as Nike and SSE.
Jonathan ‘Wes’ Westley, Executive Creative Director of The Mill said “Together they will bring a fresh vision to the 2D Team and are both passionate about how we nurture and grow the talent we have here at the Mill. Their enthusiasm and creativity will ensure that we continue to attract and produce the most exciting and creative work around.”
