Simon has worked in the film, television and advertising industry for over 25 years. He started out at Iloura 20 years ago as its Executive Producer; at the time Iloura was a small VFX and animation studio that traditionally focussed on commercials. He has successfully championed Iloura’s expansion into the complex and challenging world of large-budget international feature film and television production for which the boutique studio is now highly acclaimed.
In 2012, Simon took over build and management of a Sydney based studio, which now houses over 120 artists to add to the 120 artists in Melbourne.
With his vast knowledge in project management and budgeting, Simon has been instrumental in either securing or managing major deals for Iloura including Paramount Pictures SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water; HBO’s Game of Thrones; Warner Bros. Mad Max: Fury Road; Sony Columbia’s Ghostbusters, Lionsgate’s Gods of Egypt and Universal Pictures’ Ted and Ted 2.
