New York Studio Undergoes Major ExpansionJul 17, 2012
Method Studios has significantly
expanded its New York presence in order to meet growing demand in the region
for high-end visual effects work for feature films and commercials.
As Executive Producer, industry veteran Stuart Robinson will
be at the helm alongside Dan Seddon who has been
promoted and relocated from LA to serve as Creative Director. In addition, eight highly
talented artists have also relocated from Method's LA studio to booster the NY team.
"Method Studios continues to expand its feature film and commercial VFX operations in Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver, London, and Sydney," says Dan Glass, Method's EVP and senior visual effects supervisor. "New York is a growing market for us and we are delighted to now have the talent and infrastructure in place to service that demand."
Robinson brings to Method decades of experience developing and executing technical and creative solutions at major VFX houses in the U.K. and the U.S. "I'm very excited to be joining the Method Studios team," says Robinson. "The company is internationally renowned for its VFX work and for creative approaches to complex technical challenges. It is a perfect place for someone with the skill set I've developed over the years."
Seddon joined Method LA as a VFX Supervisor in 2009, bringing a wealth of experience with him, including award-winning creature and other CGI work. Seddon's talents have landed him three Visual Effects Society awards and two additional nominations, as well as accolades from BAFTA, Cannes Lions and many other organizations recognizing outstanding VFX. While at Method, Seddon has worked on numerous VFX-intensive features, including Let Me In, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and he lead the CG team on Wrath of the Titans. "Production and post production in New York is booming," Seddon concludes, "and I'm delighted to be a part of Method's team in this wonderful city."
