The ex-MPC Financial Director joins us after decades of working with one of the most prestigious VFX teams in the world
Tony spent almost 30 years at The Moving Picture Company (MPC), during which he played a key role in supporting senior management as Finance Director in London.
Key accomplishments during that time include the move into film VFX, MPC becoming a global operation, sale of the business from ITV to Technicolor and expansion to thousands of employees as MPC became one of the largest studios in the world.
“I am really excited by the opportunity to join Outpost VFX as a non-exec and I am looking forward to helping a young, creative and enthusiastic management team navigate both the many opportunities and various challenges thrown up by the dynamic industry we work in,” said Camilleri.
After qualifying as an accountant, Tony spent a small time in practice before moving to Trafalgar House Plc to work within the Building Construction division. After four years he left to join MPC.
“When I worked with Tony 12 years ago at MPC I could never have predicted a future where he sits on our board offering priceless advice and structure,” said Duncan McWilliam, founder and CEO of Outpost VFX.
“Tony’s knowledge of accounting, finance and the business of visual effects is some of the most valuable in the world. He was a key player throughout the history of MPC. Whilst our goals are more modest, his steady hand at the Outpost tiller will help us navigate the complex world of finance and make the right decisions for the company’s steady growth and international development.
“I couldn’t be happier to make such a high-calibre addition to the Outpost VFX board.”
Tony's appointment follows the addition of IPA Fellow Simon Dodd to the board of directors earlier in 2018.
