A day at Framestore LA included running teams of VFX producers, overseeing the systems department, the overall management of the office, communicating with London HQ, HR, finance and sales.
Because FS LA is a start up our team was relatively small; about 15 employees. They are a hard working team of content providers and artists. Communicating with them was the most enjoyable part of the job.
The least enjoyable part of the job was the lack of understanding from HQ how to do business in the state of California.
The most interesting part of the experience was learning the VFX pipeline , the software and dealing with the foreign offices.
