What is a Runner?
Runners are the essential “bloodline” to the smooth operation of Framestore as a business.  Whether they’re providing assistance to our clients and employees, ensuring that our facilities and meeting spaces are clean, delivering messages or resources for our teams or simply making a cup of coffee, our Runners are integral to everything we do.

Do I need a visual effects qualification?
There is no formal qualification to be a Runner at Framestore. All of our Runners are able to demonstrate a passion and excitement for the post-production industry or an eagerness to learn. Showing an interest in visual effects through a portfolio, demo reel and/or qualifications would be a plus but not essential.
