Goldcrest Post Launch VFX Division headed by Dolores McGinley

Wednesday, 22nd April 2020

Today we announced the launch of a new VFX division based in our Lexington Street offices.

The new initiative will be headed by industry heavyweight Dolores McGinley, whose first task will be to assemble a bespoke team of artists. As well as developing VFX solutions to address the creative needs of projects coming to Goldcrest her team will provide an additional service to both new and existing feature & episodic clients working across the complete creative production process; helping retain more work in house and allowing clients more fluidity and flexibility, particularly given today’s fast paced delivery expectations. 

 Patrick Malone, Managing Director, says: “Having been immersed in such a diverse range of projects over the past five years we identified the need to expand into VFX some time ago. We know how essential an integrated VFX service is to our continued success as a leading supplier of creative post solutions to the film and broadcast community. As a successful VFX artist in her own right Dolores is uniquely positioned to interpret the client’s brief and offer constructive creative input throughout the production process. She will also draw upon her considerable experience working with colourists to streamline the inclusion of VFX into the grade and guarantee we are able to meet the specific creative requirements of our clients.  We will benefit enormously from Dolores’ energy, quick thinking and inspirational leadership style and could not be happier to have her join our team”

With over two decades of creative experience following her degree qualification in graphic design, Dolores joins Goldcrest having held various senior roles within the London VFX community. Recent exceptional examples of her work include The Crown, Giri/Haji and Good Omens.

 Dolores McGinley says;” I am passionate about the craft of VFX and to have the opportunity to shape and create a new group within such a prestigious company as Goldcrest is beyond exciting. The calibre of the team is inspirational as are the projects they attract. I can’t wait to get started”
