Knudsen has been in film production for almost 25 years, and joined M2 Film – Denmark’s leading provider of commercials – in 2005. Initially he was an editor and motion graphic designer, before developing skills in compositing and VFX for M2’s key clients like Lego. As the successful production company grew there was a requirement to manage the IT underpinning post-production, and Knudsen added this to his responsibilities, becoming head of IT and security in 2012.
At ELEMENTS, Knudsen will further strengthen IT security within the ELEMENTS ecosystem. He will also be responsible for the third-party storage qualification programme, which allows users to choose the right qualified storage structure for their requirements while running the ELEMENTS tools and features on top.
Thomas Grønning Knudsen joins ELEMENTS in May 1, 2021. Working from Aarhus, Denmark, he will divide his time between supporting clients worldwide and taking an active role in development and strategy at the company headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany.
