(Montreal, Canada--March 20, 2014) Montreal-based VFX studio Rodeo FX increases its presence in the United States with the recent addition of Camille Geier to its management team. Rodeo FX offers a complete array of visual effects services to the film, television and advertising industry. Acting as Executive Producer for the studio, Camille Geier will work actively in New York City and on the East Coast, where Rodeo FX intends to build new relationships with film, television and commercial producers who are looking to couple creative approaches with the highest quality standards in the industry.
Camille Geier, who received her training in visual effects at George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), comes with more than 20 years of experience in the film and advertising industry, and possesses a strong background in VFX production and business development. During her career, she produced visual effects on many blockbuster films including Gangs of New York, Van Helsing and The Adjustment Bureau, working for directors Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and Clint Eastwood to name a few. Camille’s addition to the team was self-evident to Rodeo FX’ President Sébastien Moreau: “I’ve known Camille for 12 years now and it was just a matter of time before we would reunite and work together again, after our fruitful partnership at ILM. Camille is a great producer – she really understands her clients’ needs and vision, and always delivers a final product that exceeds expectations.”
After emerging from ILM as an incredibly talented artist and then refining his art at Weta Digital, Sébastien Moreau founded Rodeo FX in 2006. When he approached his former colleague for the position, Camille did not hesitate one second. “The two reasons why I have accepted this offer,” says Geier, “is the incredible level of quality in Rodeo’s work, as well as its enviable reputation in the visual effects industry. Everyone who talks about Rodeo FX praises their passion, perfectionism, and remarkable professionalism.”
Rodeo FX’s objective in the near future is to develop new business opportunities on the East Coast and eventually, open a production office in the Big Apple, leveraging tax credits in both New York and Québec. In the meantime, the Montreal head office, where an ever-growing team of artists already devote their talent and passion to a number of film, TV and commercial projects, will handle production.
