Technicolor’s Academy Award-winning VFX studio Mill Film has appointed Mark Thorley to head its Australia operations as Managing Director. The announcement comes in the wake of the February launch of Mill Film in Adelaide.
Thorley brings more than 15 years of executive leadership experience working at leading companies such as Lucas Film Singapore, where he oversaw studio operations and production strategies. Prior to that, Thorley spent nine years at Animal Logic, at both their Los Angeles and Sydney locations, as Head of Production, and also held senior positions at Screen Queensland and Omnicom. His credits include numerous high-profile features such as Kong: Skull Island, Rogue One, Jurassic World and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Thorley will drive all aspects of VFX production, client relations and business development for Mill Film Australia, reporting into the Global Head of Mill Film, Lauren McCallum.
“I am delighted to welcome Mark to the Mill Film team,” said McCallum. “Mark’s appointment is an exciting milestone in the creation of our Adelaide studio and will play a key role in heading the studio and developing relationships with key partners in the South Australian film and TV community.”
