Phil Linturn Managing Director
Phil started his tenure in Amsterdam in early 2010 after transferring from the London office where he had walked the unconventional career path from Flame Artist to Executive Producer. This reflected the equally irregular journey to his previous incarnation as Graphic Designer at GQ magazine, via 'educational' roles as scaffolder, fork-lift truck driver and chef.
Phil's continued passion for aesthetics and his industrious seven years at Glassworks (both on and off the machines), have developed a keen critical eye coupled with a pragmatic approach to project management. This has led him to work alongside some of the best directing talent working in London on campaigns such as Pepsi, Sony Ericsson, Orange and Nike.
Always ready for a challenge, he divided his employment at the London and Amsterdam offices by cycling 5000km of the Andes from Bolivia to the Beagle Channel. He realised that post production was safer and so returned.
Jane Bakx Executive Producer
Glassworks Amsterdam welcomed Jane to our production team at the start of 2012 and she brought with her not only a wealth of experience and knowledge but also a particularly long and varied list of happy clients who appreciate her friendly, organised and thorough approach to project management. En route to Glassworks, she was responsible for establishing the commercials division at Storm Post Production, but is best known for her key dual role of Production Manager/PR at Postoffice. Whilst there, she established herself as a hard working and sociable favourite amongst the Amsterdam creative community.
Jane has enjoyed a varied and interesting journey to post, including work for advertising agencies, software companies, 2.5 years of accupuncture study, and a 5 year stint in Spain, managing clothing stores (and probably relaxing a bit). As a result, she is pretty fluent in Dutch, English and Spanish.
Morten Vinther Head of 2D
Morten took over the reins of our 2d department in July 2010, and his solid vfx pedigree and sharp eye for detail are an invaluable asset to our strong 2d team. Over the last 15 years, his creative compositing, technical problem-solving, and design skills have been in high demand and have taken him from his native Denmark to lead teams in Edinburgh, London, Sydney, and most recently Dublin, creating award winning work along the way.
Aside from compositing, Morten indulges his passion for photography, motion graphics and the occasional self-directed project. He can also be seen around Amsterdam, on a pedal-powered bike, transporting his 2 miniature schnauzers to and from the office.About 2D
Scott Harris Colourist
Scott arrived at Glassworks all the way from down under, having worked the last 4 years as the Senior Colourist at one of Australia's biggest posthouses Cutting Edge. He has a long history in the industry working for Oktober in NZ, Digital Pictures and Omnicom in Australia.
After all this experience Scott is able to offer an exceptionally large variety of looks to his work. He enjoys collaborative grading, working closely with directors, agency and his post peers to get the most out of the project at hand.

Ruediger Kaltenhauser Head of 3D
Head of 3D, Ruediger Kalthenhauser, originally joined Glassworks London in 2005 after finishing his studies at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg with his award winning short 'Treibgut' (siggraph animation thater). He soon became one of London's leading cgi artists specialising in character modelling and rendering, although his passion for the medium quickly led him to also excel at storyboarding, shoot supervision and project leading.
When Glassworks Amsterdam launched in 2007 he was asked to help set up a department that would lead the field in this new market, and has since expanded his skills to include the direction of fully cgi films. His passion and knowledge have led him to lead seminars at various conferences, and he continues to supplement his commercial work with self-directed projects.About 3D
