Richard C. Thomas
Head of 3D (VFX), Jellyfish Pictures
My VFX journey began in Fine Art - studying to be a painter and sculptor before discovering computer graphics. My interest grew during my studies, producing digital art and writing on visual culture. I was awarded First Class Honours in Fine Art & History of Art at Goldsmiths, University of London; after which I attended and graduated from the prestigious Royal Academy of Art for post-graduate study.
In the last 15 years, I’ve worked across London at companies including The Mill, Man Vs Machine, Electric Theatre Collective, Analog, and most recently Framestore. I am currently Head of 3D (VFX) at Jellyfish Pictures, building the team, driving the department forward into new technology and opportunities, and making some pretty cool work for TV and Film.
I continue to be passionate about creating for the community and sharing knowledge along the way on my learning journey.
