Christoph Schröer joins Artjail as VFX supervisor
People on the Move
- NEW YORK
Creative visual effects boutique Artjail has added VFX supervisor Christoph Schröer to its Chinatown, NYC studio. Previously a VFX supervisor/sr. compositor at The Mill, Schröer brings over a decade of experience and an eye for design in VFX to his new leadership role at Artjail. His work has been featured in internationally acclaimed spots for brands such as Mercedes Benz, Visa, Volkswagen, Samsung, BMW, Hennessy and Cartier.
Fusing together a knack for computer technology and a passion for graffiti design, Schröer applied his degree in Computer and Media Sciences to begin his career in VFX. He cut his teeth in VFX at some of the biggest shops in Germany and Switzerland, catching the eye of a wide range of European auto clients with his natural eye for technical design and precision. His credits from his tenure in the European market include Lead Compositor for multiple Mercedes-Benz spots, two global Volkswagen campaign launches, and BMW’s “Rev Up Your Family”.
In 2016, Schröer made the move to New York to take on a role as Senior Compositor and VFX Supervisor at The Mill. There, he teamed with notable directors such as Tarsem Singh and Derek Cianfrance, and worked in leading VFX roles on campaigns for clients including Hennessy, Nissan Altima, Samsung, Cartier and VISA. His work has garnered numerous industry accolades, such as five shortlists, including one for VFX, from Cannes Lions for Hennessey “Major” as well as recognition from the Clios, and ADC.
Noted Schröer, “The team at Artjail brings a collaborative, boutique approach to every project that they work on and their work is consistently top notch. I’m looking forward to working with their talented lineup of artists and producers to continue to elevate the output of creative work.”
“Christoph is that rare breed of artist, technically very capable, and comes with a strong creative eye. He’s a great lead who understands the desires of the agency, director, and client,” added Artjail managing director John Skeffington.
