Aleksandra Czenczek, Executive Producer

In 2011 she and her team at Zoo VFX received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Graphic Design and Art Direction for their work on First Life with David Attenborough.

As writer/director, her debut feature together with her short films have been screened at over 100 film festivals worldwide and have won dozens of awards. Her practical knowledge of VFX combined with years of experience on both the creative side and in project development makes her really in tune with production needs.

Jeanette Monero, Head of Department Compositing

A childhood fascination with the work of Ray Harryhausen and Saul Bass led to Jeanette's life long interest in creating reality from mostly inanimate elements. After various experiments with Super 8 cameras and plasticine, she studied digital animation and visualisation with her graduation film winning a commendation and screening on Sky TV. This led to her being commissioned for a pilot title sequence by Endemol UK and gaining work as a storyboard artist progressing to set design and as props buyer on various TV commercials and promos. Pursuing her passion for creating imagery Jeanette moved on to VFX compositing from 2007 leading to her working for several VFX facilities including DNeg, Cinesite, Framestore and on films such as the Academy award winner for Best Visual Effects Hugo, The Hunger Games, Everest, Jupiter Ascending, Paddington and Assassin's Creed amongst many others.

Paula Pope, Head of Production

Paula began her career over twenty years ago at Pinewood and Shepperton Studios, working on the set of Lost In Space where she spent time on the main, model and motion control units. Afterwards, she moved into VFX with the Magic Camera Company and Mill Film working on projects such as The Avengers, The World is not Enough, Pitch Black, Enigma, Lara Croft Tomb Raiderand Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Five years later, Paula joined Cinesite to manage a large support department and decided production was definitely the way to go. Shortly after, she moved to The Jim Henson Creature Shop to work as a Line Producer on two animatronic and CG feature films. In 2006, Paula joined The Senate where she spent the next 12 years as part of the senior management team producing many projects ranging from TV series such as Rome II, Troy Fall of a City and Black Mirror, to larger features like Kick Ass, Angels and Demons, Total Recall, The Martian and Kingsman: The Golden Circle. After leaving there, she joined Escape Studios to develop a producing course, before moving to Goodbye Kansas where she is enjoying being part of the team in London.
