With over 20 years of VFX and animation production experience I now spend my time at our creative studio, peregrine*, where great ideas, art and technology can thrive.  Over the course of my career I have been lucky to have worked on the the Oscar winning projects Lord of the Rings and Avatar while collaborating with such directors as Peter Jackson, James Cameron and the brilliant Terry Gilliam. In 2014 I had the honour of receiving a SciTech award for Deep Compositing from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. More recently I’ve overseen the development of a new project focused on fostering creativity in the next generation.


Fred is an independent film & television producer focusing on the development, financing, and production of films and television series for international audiences.

He was the Executive Director of Arts and Entertainment at the CBC in Toronto where he was responsible for developing, commissioning and supervising production of major television series. Current feature projects include: LITTLE ITALY, MONKEY BEACH, THE VIRTUOSO, and MILTON’S SECRET.
