Effects supervisor Bill Georgiou joins Technicolor VFX
People on the Move
- LOS ANGELES
Technicolor VFX expands its roster of VFX supervisors with the addition of Bill Georgiou, whose recent supervisor credits include Netflix’s Lost in Space, Amazon Studios' Carnival Row, and AMC’s The Walking Dead. A classically trained fine artist, Georgiou has a passion for the digital artform which is displayed in his work for both powerhouse VFX studios and on the client side for over 20 years.
“I love the puzzle of VFX. To me it’s art, but painting with light and pixels,” said Georgiou.
As someone who has been a part of the Oscar-winning VFX teams behind The Golden Compass and Life of Pi, Georgiou is excited for the opportunity to help grow and foster new disciplines within Technicolor VFX. He related, “Visual effects is such a collaborative artform, and yet it is the integration of so many different departments and skills, whether working on an invisible effect that is seemingly unnoticeable, to a critical CG creature or environment, this continues to be an exciting craft for filmmaking.”
Georgiou joins a roster of over a dozen supervisors at Technicolor VFX, including Paul Ghezzo, Kevin Chandoo and Gary Brown. The expanding team continues to scale as the volume of increasingly complex episodic content surges, creating more demand for visual effects and an opportunity for Technicolor VFX to further support storytellers.
Rachel Matchett, head of Technicolor VFX, said of Georgiou, “He brings a passion and eye for stunning CG work that is a pillar to our continued growth.”
