Number of employees
Frame, Set & Match or FSM is a post production company based in Sydney, Australia. Established in 1984 by Stephen Dunn and Rick Schweikert, FSM has developed from small operations to become a producer and participant in film, television and design throughout Australia. It is composed of five distinct units: FSM COLOUR(tm), FSM DESIGN(tm), FSM VFX(tm), FSM CUT(tm) and FSM FEATURES(tm). FSM employs over 45 staff.
Stephen Dunn and Rick Schweikert met while working as editors for a facility called Videolab. While working for Videolab Dunn and Schweikert designed an off-line suite within the building to edit music videos and corporate videos. Five years after joining Videolab Dunn and Schweikert purchased one of the first computer-controlled off-line suites in Australia and created Frame, Set & Match.
In 1991 Frame, Set & Match, along with Frameworks, installed the first AVID in the country. Shortly afterwards the company changed locations and moved to a larger facility on Ridge St. During the seven years spent at the Ridge St. facility Frame, Set & Match transitioned into becoming a complete digital facility. In 1999 Frame, Set & Match moved to its current location in Northbridge.
From early 2004, a team of designers and 3D animators was formed to be the nucleus of FSM's in-house design department. The 2005 acquisition of the first Northlight scanner in Australia saw FSM creep into the world of Digital Intermediate.
