Molinare has boosted its VFX department with the appointment of two Executive Producers, Meg Guidon and Nicola Instone.
Meg Guidon brings over twenty years’ experience to Molinare VFX, returning to the company where she began her illustrious career. After taking roles at Cinesite and Mill Film in the 1990s – where she produced with the Oscar-winning VFX team for Ridley Scott’s ‘Gladiator’ – Meg relocated to Los Angeles in 2000 to represent the UK’s VFX industry. She worked there as a Vice Consul in the Foreign Office to promote trade with the US, forging enviable links within the US post production community. More recently Meg has worked as a VFX consultant and bidding producer both in Soho and internationally, producing projects such as ‘Clash Of The Titans’ and ’Ironclad’ and working freelance as an animation producer at Passion Pictures amongst others.
Nicola Instone will move into a business development role, and brings a wealth of experience to Molinare VFX, having worked at various facilities including MPC, The Mill and Prime Focus. Nicola’s producing credentials include ‘The Wolfman,’ and ‘Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader’ and while at Prime Focus she also produced the 2D to 3D conversion of Shrek. This is all in addition to Nicola being a prominent member of the Visual Effects Society. She was honoured in 2008 with the VES Award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Broadcast Series for ‘Fight For Life.’
Scott Holmgren, Molinare COO, is delighted with the appointments: “Meg and Nicola are highly-respected industry figures and we are pleased to welcome them to Molinare. Nicola‘s producing experience will be crucial to her task of driving new business, while Meg’s international and UK connections offer an opportunity for Molinare to improve its visibility in the global marketplace. Their appointments will undoubtedly strengthen Molinare’s already outstanding VFX team.”
