Boutique VFX company Blockhead has officially opened the doors to its new state-of-the-art studio in Sydney.

Breathing new life into the old Albury Hotel in Paddington, the iconic pub on Oxford Street now houses Blockheads’ premium Flame and Grading suites, along with character spaces for the compositing and CG teams, as well as its film department.

Blockhead was formed in Auckland by co-founders and creative directors Nigel Mortimer and Stefan Coory. The company has also welcomed advertising local Greg Fyson (sitting on the left in the above photo) as its new executive producer.

“We are so lucky to have Greg on board,” Mortimer said.

“Alongside his many producing skills and penchant for a cheeky pint, he will make an excellent translator for that New Zealand and Australian language barrier.”

Recent Blockhead projects include the creation of Paul Middleditch’s ‘Dave the Goose’ for Air New Zealand, Tim Bullock’s fire-spewing ‘Scortchy the Dragon’ for Jemena and Nick Balls’ face-bitingly good snake for iSelect.
