Marc Knapton

+$A visual effects and animation Studio in London's Soho,+$The Brewery+$was founded in 2009 by VFX supervisor Marc Knapton. With film credits including Kick Ass 2, Welcome to the Punch and The Look of Love, as well as broadcast TV shows like Fleming: The Man Who Would be Bond, it's one of the most dynamic independent studios in the capital right now.

+$In the run-up to his talk at HP ZED London, we chatted to Knapton about his firm's working culture and his latest project. Here's what he had to say...

+$What's it like working at The Brewery?

+$The Brewery is all about small efficient teams. We started the company with the belief that you didn't need a massive firm, with complex pipelines and to micromanage the artists to produce good creative results.

Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond was made for BBC America and Sky Atlantic

+$There's power in being small and we like to think that we're proof of that. Plus we have gin o'clock.

+$What's the secret to your success?

+$We've been very lucky. We started working for Michael Winterbottom in 2006 and built a lasting relationship with him, working on a further seven films. We've progressed by working on a whole range of projects, from short form to Hollywood features.

The Look of Love is one of many Michael Winterbottom films the studio has worked on

+$We look at each job on a case by case basis and are always open to discussion with directors or producers. This has given us the chance to grow and work on some incredible projects.

+$What's it been like working on ITV period drama The Great Fire?

+$This was a rewarding and awesome challenge. Not only did we need to build London as it stood in the 1600s but we also needed to burn it to the ground.

+$Briefs like this can be daunting at first but when you look at the
+$specific challenges and approach them with clever ideas it's easy to get good results. We managed to complete all the work for the series with only a handful of talented people: three 3D artists, two matte painters and three comp.

+$What's exciting you in terms of tech right now?

+$Production Tracking!+$I never thought I'd hear myself say that but we're currently using ftrack to manage a 13-part series.

+$There could be over 500 shots throughout the series, so for everyone to easily know the status and comments on their shots is invaluable.

+$See Marc Knapton speak!
