Academy Award®-Winner Tim Burke Joins DNEG

Acclaimed VFX Supervisor joins DNEG in London

Welcome to DNEG, Tim!

We’re excited to announce that Academy Award®-winning VFX Supervisor Tim Burke has joined DNEG, based at our London studio!

With over two decades of industry experience, Tim’s impressive list of Production VFX Supervisor credits includes Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The Legend of Tarzan, and the last four films in the Harry Potter franchise, among others.

A prolific and highly-acclaimed Production VFX Supervisor, Tim has been honoured with several awards for his work over the years, including the Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects for his work with Ridley Scott on Gladiator! He has also won a VES Award for his work as Production VFX Supervisor for Alfonso Cuarón’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban; and a BAFTA for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, for which he was Production VFX Supervisor for director David Yates.

On joining DNEG, Tim said:
“I’ve worked with DNEG as an independent VFX Supervisor for 20 years, watching the facility grow from strength to strength during that time, so I am very excited to be forging even closer ties with the company and the amazingly talented artists who work here, during this next chapter of my career.”
Tim continued: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was one of the most memorable films to supervise. It was the end of an era for everyone who had worked on the Potter films, which had been so instrumental in building the UK visual effects industry. Working with DNEG to complete the final battle scenes and those memorable last shots of the kids standing in front of the destroyed Hogwarts was such an awe-inspiring thing to be part of – a moment in cinema history.”
DNEG Chairman and CEO, Namit Malhotra said:
“The recognition that Tim has earned in our industry is incredibly well-deserved and I am proud to welcome him to DNEG’s creative leadership team. Tim has played an important role in the development and success of the visual effects industry in the UK as a talented and highly admired production VFX supervisor for directors such as Sir Ridley Scott, David Yates and Alfonso Cuarón. I am excited to have him onboard as part of our senior creative team as we chart the course for DNEG through the rest of 2023 and beyond.”
