Lexhag VFX Appoints Managing Director Tom Lewis
We are very excited to announce the appointment and arrival of our new Managing Director, Tom Lewis.
Tom joins us from the award-winning entertainment marketing agency that counts Disney, Universal and Netflix among its Film, TV, and games clients. Tom opened the UK arm of the US-based company in 2009, growing the London office to a team of 30 people.
Alexis, our founder and senior VFX supervisor, and Tom have a long-standing client-supplier relationship dating back more than ten years. Their shared passion for great storytelling, bold creative ambitions and combined experience in the film and tv industry make them a force to be reckoned with.
“I’ve considered Lexhag a creative partner for over ten years. I’ve always been impressed by the willingness to bring creative ideas to a project and drive to produce the best work. Their collaborative ethos and ability to combine traditional filmmaking techniques with cutting-edge technology is central to delivering the best narrative-driven content”, explained Tom. “I’m looking forward to building on the successes of recent years and to helping a broad mix of clients benefit from the full range of creative tools available, including technological advancements like Virtual Production.”
Tom’s hire marks our move to a more formal senior management structure, as Alexis explains, “our clients love the boutique experience they get from working with us. But, as we’re faced with bigger opportunities, the reality is that we need to align more closely with our client’s organisational structures. Tom has the passion and credentials to lead our growth as a modern story-first VFX studio”.
We’ll be checking in with Tom soon to find out a little more about where his passion for storytelling comes from, his career highlights and his first impressions of us at Lexhag. But we’ll let him get comfy first.
