frameworks is an Athens based visual effects studio, founded by Georgios Papaioannou in 2013. Joined by Stavros Theiakos in 2017, we have created a team of professionals familiar with the entire pipeline, providing high end post production and visual effects services.
Born in Kavala, Greece. Studied Civil Engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where he got his PhD in Finite Element Analysis. Parallel with his studies, he was always experimenting with indie film making and computer graphics. So, in 2011, he participated at the 52nd Thessaloniki Film Festival with the ultra-low-budget superhero comedy Super Demetrios and won the Audience and Michael Cacoyannis awards. In September 2012 he was awarded a Fulbright scholarship and moved to Los Angeles, CA to study at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Returned to Athens, Greece in 2013 and since then he follows a career in visual effects, working in high profile projects and collaborating with some of the leading studios on the field like Framestore, Glassworks and many more.
Born and raised in Athens, Greece but really lives in his own world. He studied applied mathematics and physics in the national technical University of Athens partly because he was good at solving math problems and partly because it was the way to make his parents buy him the guitar of his dreams. At the same time, he is an aspiring DIY film maker, Japanese learner and a Rockstar in the makings. Aiming to combine maths with his artistic side he finally finds peace in the world of the visual effects where arts and science meet. After completing his studies, he enrolled at the Escape Studios Compositing for Visual effects Course in London. Since 2012 he works as a visual effects artist and has collaborated with firms in London, Los Angeles, Spain and more.
