[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?
Nothing, I’m an Angel! 😇
What was your last brush with danger?
Sunday jogging down Mont Royal on a particularly icy path, but as this is my second Montreal winter, I can totally style out a slip…slide…fall!
Your last brush with greatness?
Haha — in an office with Oscar winners! ….also I think Brie Larson said “hi” or was it “bye” to me after a photo scan last September, does that count?
Your worst character fault?
Your most shining quality?
Perfectionist tendencies, it’s a love-hate relationship!
You’re on the run from the law, where are you headed?
Byron Bay, Australia and my whole life journey getting there. However, I bought a round-the-world ticket with lots of stops along the way.
Who’s your partner-in-crime?
I’m a lone ranger, but by day I work with a kick-ass production team.
My latest Instagram stalk — “alfie_the_alpaca_in_adelaide”. (Look him up!)
Your greatest achievement?
The euphoria I felt finishing my first marathon, I cried, I laughed, I had black toe nails for six months after.
Most valuable skill?
Commitment — Rain, hail, or shine, I’ll turn up every day ready for battle.
Go on, say something bragging:
Strategy board games…..I’m hot!
Name your vice/pet peeve?
Getting stuck behind a slow walker…. I have places to be, people to meet!
The DREAM project would entail:
A locked edit…. Ah haha!
Your career highlight to date:
Always the last project we delivered — Captain Marvel!
This week I learnt that:
Sabrina Gagnon, Head of Production, has an amazing excel template for importing bookings into shotgun, pretty sweeeeet!
What’s your current view?
I’m sitting behind a door facing a wall with a whiteboard listing all the things that we need to chase on our current project, it’s a glamorous life!
Give us a desk tour
Klean Kanteen water bottle, chap stick, and my classic calculator that I actually stole from the London office because I wasn’t able to part ways #producer.
What do you need to work, on the daily?
Morning coffee — imperative.
Framestore is, to you, in three words:
Best thing about your work environment?
Montreal — Love, love, love living walking distance to work.
Framestore is great at:
Bringing together great talent, growing from within, and leaving your ego at the door!
Music, couldn’t live without it.
Someone sent me this recently and struck me as a beautiful moment.
“Boy receiving a new pair of shoes at an orphanage in Austria , 1946.”
Fictional character you’d like to hang with?
Peter Pan — I’m not ready to grow old.
Happiness looks like:
Waking up in a tent on a mountain.
If not here, then where?
What do you think of too often?
And not enough?
How to be kind and generous to the people I love.
Couldn’t live without:
My Brita water filter, I’m a convert!
If you ruled the world:
It would be a hard job! We’d eradicate single use plastics, we’d eliminate fear and terrorism, and we’d inspire a culture of peace and understanding regardless of race, religion, and sex.
