Welcome to DNEG, Guillaume Rocheron!
We’re excited to announce that multiple Academy Award®-winning VFX Supervisor Guillaume Rocheron has joined DNEG, based at our Los Angeles studio.
In 2020, Guillaume was honoured with an Academy Award® and a BAFTA Award for his work on 1917, for which he and his teams created long, seamless shots that maintained the illusion of the whole two hour movie being shot in one continuous take. He had previously been awarded an Academy Award®, a BAFTA and a Visual Effects Society (VES) Award for his work on Ang Lee’s critically acclaimed Life of Pi.
With over two decades of industry experience, Guillaume’s list of Production VFX Supervisor credits includes Jordan Peele’s otherworldly sci-fi thriller Nope, Michael Dougherty’s big budget monster movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and Rupert Sanders’ sci-fi techno-thriller Ghost in the Shell, among others.
Most recently, Guillaume oversaw the visual effects work on Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Bardo: False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths, which will be released on Netflix on December 16, 2022.
On joining DNEG, Guillaume said:
“It’s been incredible to see how DNEG has evolved over the last few years, and to see how Namit and his team have been transforming the company into a home for filmmakers to create amazing visual effects. I am excited to embark on this collaboration with DNEG’s outstanding artists, engineers, and technicians, and to join a global team that includes so many talented supervisors. DNEG’s filmmaker-oriented mentality, focus on innovation, and commitment to its people are all very appealing to me, and I am looking forward to exploring further opportunities for close collaboration with some of the world’s most visionary filmmakers.”
DNEG Chairman and CEO, Namit Malhotra, said:
“I’ve known and admired Guillaume for many years and he is a unique talent in our business. As a widely respected and highly admired supervisor, Guillaume has produced some extraordinary work over the course of his career – from the technical achievements of 1917, to the futuristic world-building of Ghost in the Shell, to the sheer range of techniques and disciplines on display in Nope, he is a supervisor who always pushes the envelope and knows how to get the very best from his teams. 2023 will be a thrilling year for DNEG, with some big opportunities on the horizon, and I am excited to have Guillaume onboard as part of our senior creative team, to help chart the course for DNEG through next year and beyond.”
