Janet is a classically trained bassoonist (yes, the bassoon!) and her love of music led her to the fun world of music video editing and visual effects in the UK. She moved to the states to pursue the expanding digital world as a compositor, which quickly led to VFX supervising and producing. Her curiosity for new technology has taken her around the globe working on innovative projects, to recently heading up the Global VFX group for Netflix when she was able to immerse herself in the exciting and revolutionary world of Virtual Production. Janet has supervised and produced VFX, CGI and Animation for theatrical features, IMAX, television, commercials and Stereoscopic Special Venues. On the management side she has overseen and managed VFX companies both large and small. During her time at Netflix Europe, she oversaw the hugely popular first season of The Witcher.
