Known for his Emmy-nominated work as VFX Supervisor on the third season of Westworld, as well as Star Trek: Picard and Marvel’s Runaways, Fernsler is a well-respected creative with over 15 years of visual effects experience.
Fernsler will work with directors, producers and showrunners to deliver premium visual effects for film and episodic productions and will collaborate closely with Managing Director Andy Williams to expand the team and technological prowess of our new Los Angeles studio.
Fernsler said: “I came to Outpost because of the great work they’ve done, the amazing people and their commitment to pursuing a better culture and work/life balance. I’m excited to help launch our first US studio in Los Angeles, continue to add to our great team and work with our clients in LA and further afield to complement their productions with quality visual effects.”
Prior to joining Outpost, Fernsler spent nearly four years working on high-end California-incentivized shows such as Star Trek: Discovery. He then moved into virtual production, helping to establish forward-thinking VP workflows to benefit global studios.
Fernsler also spent over four years as an educator in VFX, games and animation at Drexel University in Pennsylvania, helping to develop the careers of exciting emerging talent in computer graphics. Says Williams: “I’ve had the privilege of working with Jeremy through a significant portion of both our careers. I couldn’t imagine a better collaborator to lead a team internally and to interface with our clients. He’s that rare talent that brings tremendous creativity, a technical mastery across all disciplines and a generosity with our crew that helps to set the tone for our unique culture.”
Fernsler’s appointment follows the recent announcement that we are opening a Los Angeles facility in Burbank in summer 2021 to complement our sites in Bournemouth, UK and Montreal, Canada.
