New York-based VFX and design house Phosphene has appointed Rebecca Dunn to the newly created post of head of operations and strategy.

Dunn moved to the United States from Australia in 2012 and joined Phosphene as a visual effects producer/compositing supervisor. She established herself as an invaluable addition to the team producing effects for numerous Phosphene television projects including Forever, Boardwalk Empire (Seasons 3-5), The Knick and The Americans (Season 1), as well as feature films Equals, The Fault in Our Stars and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

“Beck (Rebecca) is a singular talent who came to Phosphene with an unbelievably unique balance of creative and technical expertise. Having started as a compositor, she has the perfect vantage point from which to help expand the company and strategize for the future,” said company CEO and executive producer Vivian Connolly.

“I am very excited about this new phase,” said Dunn. “Moving into the head of operations and strategy role allows me to use my combined experience working with Phosphene’s talented artists and producers over the past three years, and my previous experience in operations, to help ensure that as we grow Phosphene’s clients will continue to receive the same high level of visual effects and design services for which the company is known.”

Prior to joining Phosphene, Dunn was visual effects producer at Postmodern Sydney (now Method, Deluxe Group) where she worked on features including The Hunter and A Few Best Men, and commercial spots including “361-Running/Basketball” (TVC; Ogilvy & Mather) and Sprite – “Skateboard” (TVC; BBH China).

At EFILM Australia (Deluxe Group), in digital intermediate operations, and earlier as digital supervisor, Dunn worked on features including Oranges and Sunshine (Jim Loach director), The Way Back (Peter Weir director), Animal Kingdom (David Michod director), Australia (Baz Luhrmann director), Mao’s Last Dancer (Bruce Beresford director), Bright Star (Jane Campion director), Samson and Delilah (Warwick Thornton director) and Death Defying Acts (Gillian Armstrong director).

Earlier in her career, Dunn was senior compositor at Atlab (Deluxe Group) and a compositor at Capital FX (London, Deluxe Group).

She is currently a board member of the Visual Effect Society (New York) and a member/special visual effects of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
