1 December 2021

Patrick Keogh, Rasel Hussain, and Risto Puukko have joined the CG wing at Absolute.

With the Soho outfit keen to end 2021 on a high, Keogh joins as CG Supervisor, Hussain as Junior CG Artist, and Puukko as FX Supervisor. You could say Christmas has come early for head of CG Rebekah King-Britton.

"I'm delighted about our newest team members," King-Britton says. "The CG department at Absolute is really thriving and it's great to be able to broaden our niche skillsets, as well as mentor the next generation of talent, with our new hires."


I feel really privileged to get this opportunity at Absolute, as I have always dreamed about working in this field."

First through the door is former The Mill and Weta Digital artist Keogh, who says: "I can't wait to meet the team properly and share different approaches to the way we work. I'm excited to diversify my knowledge through the people around me."

Next is industry up-and-comer Hussain: "I love creating things and watching them come alive. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to learn from and work with some of the best minds in the industry. I feel really privileged to get this opportunity at Absolute, as I have always dreamed about working in this field."

As for VFX guru Puukko, he's already busy inside 8 Poland Street on a variety of projects. Expect to see his advanced water FX on screens soon.
