Jason Griffin

JASON GRIFFIN

SENIOR PRODUCER

Jason joined the film industry in August 1994, with Technicolor® Film Laboratory in West London.

He worked his way up through the company, finally ending up in the Intermediates department of the laboratory.

In August 1997 he left Technicolor® after he was offered a job by Capital FX to become their Laser Subtitling Supervisor. This was a new area of business for the company at the time and Jason developed the department and nurtured it through its infancy, building that side of the business very successfully.

During the later years of his tenure at Capital FX he began to become more involved with visual effects and title production and worked as a Producer where he was responsible for Client Liaison and Studio Production output for the foreign versioning markets of Walt Disney, Paramount & Universal.

In September 2007 Fugitive Studios was born and Jason carried his role of Producer into the new company. During his time working at Fugitive he has adapted his skills and abilities to keep pace with the changing technologies within the film industry, all the while helping to run a successful Post-Production business.

Maria Cerrato

Maria Cerrato

Motion Graphics Designer

No better term to define her than a “Fugitive”: she left her past as a journalist in Spain to focus on her design career, and moved to England, where she studied at the National Film & Television School.

She’s one more creative slave of Adobe and Maxon (Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects and Cinema 4D), but she still prefers pen and paper to start and develop new ideas.

Keeping the sunshine inside even on rainy days, she’s open to challenges and loves a new project.

Her highlights from last year are:

  • Smoke simulations in Aladdin’s Title Sequence or Jurassic Word’s Battle at Big Rock.
  • End Credits for Dora The Explorer and The Gentlemen.
  • Creating a new font for Little Women’s versioning.
  • Title Design and animation for different films.
  • The cake in the office on her birthday.

Simon Dowling

Simon Dowling

Senior Graphic Designer

Colleagues would say that Simon has been producing graphics and titles since the silent movie era. In truth, he’s ‘only’ been in the industry 40 years.

Starting in TV commercials in 1980 he moved on to graphics for Feature Film Trailers and Features at National Screen Service. Following the company’s break up he was self employed for 8 years, producing titles for numerous films which led to him being snapped up by Capital FX, a small optical company specializing in foreign versioning. Over the years CFX expanded and secured the big 5 studios as clients and Simon achieved the position of Director of Production. When the company was sold to Deluxe, Simon and three colleagues left to form their own company, Fugitive.

OVER THE YEARS, highlights INCLUDE:

  • Working with Maurice Binder on two of the Bond movies,
  • Making tea for Nicolas Roeg,
  • Disappointing Ken Loach
  • Producing animation and text for the first Apple commercial in 1984
  • Working on the title sequences for all the Harry Potter movies and creating all the rollers for that series.

Areas of expertise:

And, as a Fugitive, being involved in producing the titles for some of the biggest movies such as Gravity, Jurassic World, Chronicles of Narnia, Rogue One and most recently Aladdin.

And despite all that glory, after 40 years his main love is still end rollers!
