Sophie Gunn joins Builders Club
Gunn joins from MPC as the creative production agency continues to grow.
With the title of Executive Producer, Sophie Gunn has joined the Builders Club from MPC where, over the past five years, she helped grow MPC Creative.
Previously working across a diverse range of projects both direct-to-brand, and alongside agencies, Gunn also oversaw the successful growth of the MPC’s Motion Design Studio, growing it from a handful of designers into a bustling department of over twenty artists. This led to her promotion as Executive Producer of the London office’s MPC Creative, focusing on any production project that was ‘outside of the traditional VFX division’. Prior to MPC, Gunn worked at HHCL, crossing over to work as a VFX producer.
As part of her responsibilities at Builders Club, Gunn will oversee the production processes and will also ensure the continuous growth of the business and its success story. Gunn will play a crucial role in ensuring the flow of new projects.
During the past six months, in addition to Gunn’s hire, the company welcomed five new CG artists and a marketing and sales person, further cementing its growth trajectory.
“Despite 2020 being a strange year for some, Builders Club has been incredibly fortunate to be going from strength to strength,” Founders Julien Simshauser and Jonas Hegi said. “For us, it’s been perfect timing to grow our team and welcome Sophie on board. Her experience spanning agency, production and post production roles will be an invaluable asset to both us and our clients. Sophie’s experience with clients at agencies and at post houses and finally at a production company gives her a great global perspective on the different ways we can help our clients and their businesses”.
“I’m delighted to join the team at Builders Club,” said Gunn. “Jonas and Julien have really challenged the structure of a high-end traditional studio model, whilst delivering amazing results every time. They really care about maintaining creative standards and embracing new technologies - in all mediums - to achieve the best results. They are genuine in their plight to be authentic and cut through the noise. It's very refreshing and I am delighted to be a part of it.”
