[FRAMED]: Gabrielle Davoine, Line Producer, MTL
[FRAMED] exists to shine light on Framestore’s most fascinating cast of characters: its people. Presented with a probing list of questions and a demandingly short deadline, this feature puts the hopes, dreams, and desktops of our MVPs on the digital wall, for all to see. Welcome to [FRAMED].
What are you guilty of?
I bite my nails to the bone…
What was your last brush with danger?
I did crazy carpet last weekend… if you don’t know what this is, you’re missing out!
Your last brush with greatness?
Got my third dose of the vaccine… this has to end at some point, right?
Your worst character fault?
Your most shining quality?
I’m enthusiastic about pretty much everything!
If you had taken a different path, what would you be doing now?
I would be running a cheese shop or a chocolate factory.
You’re on the run from the law, where are you headed?
Somewhere deep in the forest, by a lake, with a fishing rod.
Who’s your partner-in-crime?
In life: My boyfriend, husband, best friend of the past 18 years, Gabbo. At work: Perdita Carvil - we’ve been on the same projects since we started at Framestore and we share the same passion for chocolate, gossip and Sunday roasts.
A magician. If they can’t get us out of there, at least they can entertain us.
What’s your favourite movie/TV show and why?
The Simpsons, it’s self explanatory!
Your greatest achievement?
My daughter. She’s still very young but so far she’s pretty awesome!
Most valuable skill?
Go on, say something bragging:
I work at Framestore on bad ass movies. LOL!
Name your vice/pet peeve?
The DREAM project would entail:
Leonardo DiCaprio, a boat, an iceberg… wait, what?
Your career highlight to date:
AOTD… all of it!
This week I learnt that:
A voxel is kind of like a 3D pixel.
What’s your current view?
I’m looking at a very cool graffiti that one of our friends did in our basement.
Give us a desk tour:
A notepad, cup of coffee, chocolate bar, random papers, concrete pen holder and a few awesome cat coasters.
What do you need to work, on the daily?
Framestore is, to you, in three words:
Intense, exciting, awesome.
Best thing about your work environment?
(WFH) It is 2 steps away from my bed and the kitchen.
Framestore is great at:
Bringing challenging projects to life.
This picture of my brothers and I is perfect. Taken just at the right time, capturing the essence of our personalities. FYI it isn’t my birthday…
Fictional character you’d like to hang with?
Happiness looks like:
A raclette party in good company.
If not here, then where?
What do you think of too often?
And not enough?
To call my grandparents.
Couldn’t live without:
If you ruled the world:
Equality would be a thing and I would do something about climate change.
