Karl Woolley has been promoted to creative technologist at Framestore. In the last year, Karl has been technical supervisor on projects for Samsung’s Galaxy S4 launch, the BBC’s Comic Relief marathon, Somerset House’s popular Valentino Exhibition and Emirates’ Aviation Experience, as well as big corporate events for Unilever.
After studying film and television production at The University of Westminster, Karl joined Framestore in 2005 as a runner, quickly working his way up to systems administrator looking after the integrated advertising department. He has regularly traveled to the U.S. to handle various technical projects and expansions at Framestore’s New York and Los Angeles offices. He briefly left Framestore to help oversee the technical set-up at Prime Focus Film in London before returning to the fold as a senior engineer and taking on an increasing role in digital and interactive projects.
“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to be able to work and pitch on such a varied range of brands and projects,” Woolley said. “I think you’re going to see some impressive and non-traditional things from Framestore over the coming months.”
“Karl’s a great addition to the team,” said Mike Woods, Framestore’s head of digital. “He effortlessly understands the world we inhabit here in Digital, and has already proven his worth across a multitude of disciplines and platforms.”
