Fink ankles at Prime Focus

Exclusive Michael Fink has ankled as CEO and senior visual effects supervisor for Prime Focus VFX North America.

Fink was a visual effects supervisor before taking the Prime Focus post. His credits include “The Golden Compass,” which took an Academy Award for its vfx.

He told Variety he has been approached about directing opportunities and will also look for opportunities in visual effects.

During Fink’s tenure at Prime Focus, the company roughly tripled its workforce and grew substantially in gross revenue. It expanded its facilities in Mumbai and Vancouver and added a 2D-to-3D conversion business. Recent Prime Focus credits include “Green Lantern” and “X-Men: First Class.”

Prime Focus does not plan to fill the CEO post vacated by Fink. Jeremy Nicolaides has been promoted from senior stereographer to creative director for the 3D conversion business. Martin Hobbs, managing director for Prime Focus Film in London has added the title Managing Director for Prime Focus VFX Vancouver. He splits his time between London and Vancouver. His London responsibilities include overseeing both vfx and 3D conversion.
