Head of Rigging, Framestore
Speaking at Animex Screen
Nicolas heads the VFX rigging department at Framestore London. His recent projects include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Prince of Persia, Where the Wild Things Are, Avatar, Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, Clash of the Titans and The Tale of Despereaux.
Nico has been at the forefront of CG creature development and new technology adoption at the studio. Over the past few years, he and his team have built a powerful, flexible and artist friendly in-house rigging system – effectively breaking down any rig into reusable code and data components. The rigging can deliver a wide variety of complex rigs with fast turnaround not only to animation, but to previs, tracking, simulation, and mocap departments.
