Established in 2010, Cumulus VFX started from the humble beginnings of our founder, William Gammon’s garage. Armed with a laptop and a vision to create remote visual effects as a service, Will quickly tapped into the independent film market, offering cost effective solutions to low budget films. Now, having proved an effective workflow, Cumulus VFX takes on larger packages of work from local and internationals clients for VFX, post production and beyond.
Will started his career in visual effects in early 2001, working for Australia’s Rising Sun Pictures in Adelaide. With his background in photography, and under the guidance of some of Australia’s best talent, Will very quickly honed his skills in the craft of compositing.
In 2010 Will transitioned into animated feature work at Animal Logic. Working on the breathtaking 3D film The Legend of the Guardians, Will led some of the key sequences from look development to final. Soon after Will joined the exclusive compositing team at Fuel VFX to work on Marvel Studios, Thor and a swag of high end commercials before returning to Animal Logic for the stereoscopic conversion of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Upon completion, Will returned to Fuel to work on Mission Impossible 4 – Ghost Protocol and led a team of artists on one of the most technically challenging shots. Shortly after, he joined the team on Happy Feet 2 at Dr D Studios, where he developed and composited some of the most visually spectacular sequences of the film.
