[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?
Being really bad at identifying celebrities.
What was your last brush with danger?
We went canoeing with friends without good gear and the bad weather caught us by surprise. It turned out to be a lot of fun but we definitely should have been more cautious.
Your last brush with greatness?
Hiking on a volcano.
Your worst character fault?
I can have high expectations.
Your most shining quality?
You’re on the run from the law, where are you headed?
Reunion island, although it is rather too small to be the perfect hideout.

For the past few months, it has been Morgan Hardy for sure! We just delivered The Midnight Sky and it was fun teamwork.
What’s your favorite movie/TV show and why?
