James Razzall is Framestore’s President of North America Advertising. Previously Managing Director in Los Angeles, he has been part of the Framestore family for 18 years. Having started with the company in London, he has played a significant role in the growth of Framestore over the years and was part of the management team that founded the New York office in 2004.
In 2013 Razzall moved to Los Angeles, to open up the office and expand the company’s share of the US integrated advertising market. He brings true Framestore experience to the venture, and ensures the same level of service and creative excellence you would expect from any of the company’s locations. Razzall has since grown the West Coast operation to nearly 100 full time staff, encompassing core VFX and Framestore’s most innovative divisions: Framestore Pictures, Framestore Labs, Dark Rides, and VR Studio.
Along with the other members of the senior management team, Razzall has been integral in helping the US side of the Framestore group become a formidable creative force, bringing its Oscar-winning images to any platform, whether television, installation or VR experience. He’s recently joined the West Coast board of AICP.
