Method Design showcaseSep 21, 2012
As a follow-up to the 2012 launch of Method Studios’ design group, aptly named Method Design, a standalone website highlighting the groups’ latest and greatest has been launched.
Located within Method’s studio in Los Angeles, Method Design is a complementary addition to the core visual effects work Method Studios is known for. The creative team (originally known as Rok!t Studio - whose previous credits include main titles for Captain America: The First Avenger, The Wolfman and Gulliver’s Travels), focuses on design and animation for feature films, commercials, entertainment marketing, and broadcast.
“By adding to and rounding out our foundation visual effects services, we offer our clients collaborative and best-of-breed creative solutions through the entire production process,” says Dan Glass, EVP and Senior Visual Effects Supervisor of Method Studios.“We are extremely excited at the new potential for creativity and the added production support and resources Method Studios offers” adds Dan Masciarelli, Producer of Method Design.
Since the beginning of the year, the Method Design team has more than tripled in size. One of the most significant additions is the recent hire of Creative Director, Heebok Lee of Prologue whose credits include Superman Returns, Ninja Assassin and Spiderman 3. “Heebok’s experience at Prologue in main titles and his beautiful, abstract approach to design, visual effects and CG are great compliments to our artistic offering in the LA studio. It’s fantastic to have him aboard,” comments Executive Creative Director, Steve Viola.
