Kaya Jabar is a multidisciplinary visualisation supervisor with unique experience leading previs, postvis, techvis and virtual production for tentpole film and TV projects.
Kaya Jabar began her career as an animator at Guerilla Games where she discovered a passion for interactive storytelling as part of the cinematics team. In 2014, Jabar moved to The Third Floor
London as a previs artist and principal architect of the company’s virtual production and on-set visualisation services. This led to a two-year stint on the multi Emmy Award winning "Game Of
Thrones", which saw her supervise the on-set virtual production for the show, designing and delivering hundreds of complex dragon and fire elements.
Leaving "Westeros" behind after two seasons, Kaya Jabar then supervised virtual production for JJ Abrams’ "Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker" and Tim Burton’s "Dumbo", before returning to London
to develop real-time adoption and virtual production workflows with the aim of making visualisation more efficient and interactive. More recently she was a virtual production supervisor on
"Venom: Let There be Carnage" and the Oscar nominated "The Midnight Sky".
A regular on the international speaking circuit and one of the most influential women working in VFX, Kaya joined Framestore in 2020 as a pre-production supervisor, working across previs, postvis
and virtual production, as well as providing on-set technical direction and planning for complex VFX and practical setups.
