Head of VFX Operation
Damien has worked in TV post production, in Manchester, for nearly thirty years. Originally training in Electronic and Broadcast engineering, he served his technical apprenticeship at Manchester’s Editz and CAL post houses. In 1994 he was a founding member of 422’s operation in Manchester, and went on to become the 422 Group’s Chief Engineer, managing technical matters on sites in Bristol, Manchester and London.
In 1999 he became Facilities Director for the group with responsibility for operations in Manchester. An MBO in 2003 led to direct joint ownership of the Manchester operation, and helped establish 422.tv as one of the premier post and VFX facilities outside of London. The business merged with dock10’s post production department in 2016, and after over-seeing the move of their facilities to Media City, he now manages post operations for dock 10’s shortform post business.
