Cinesite (Europe) has appointed Antony Hunt, former managing director of MillFilm, as managing director as part of a round of appointments.

Also joining the effects house are head of digital imaging Mitch Mitchell and Jose Granell, who takes up the post of visual effects supervisor and director of models. Other appointments include CG artists Simon Stanley-Clamp, Andy Kind, Ivor Middleton and Royston Wilcocks, all formerly of Mill Film, which closed its feature operation late last year.

"These appointments reflect Cinesite's growth over the past year and our plans for the strategic development of areas of our business," said Colin Brown, CEO of Cinesite World-wide.
