VFX expert Marc Weigert named as President of MethodJul 7, 2014
We are excited to announce the arrival of VFX Supervisor Marc Weigert as President of Method Studios. Marc is a well regarded expert and innovator in his field having worked across many capacities in film production and post-production for over 20 years. Most recently he served as co-producer, visual effects supervisor and second-unit director on Sony Pictures’ 2013 release, “White House Down,” one of several Roland Emmerich-directed films on which he has worked.
Prior to joining Method, Marc was CEO of film production company Uncharted Territory, which he co-founded with effects expert Volker Engel in 1999. Here, Weigert was overall VFX supervisor and co-producer on “2012” and supervised VFX shots on Paramount’s Oscar-winning release, the Martin Scorsese-directed “Hugo.”
“I’ve been fortunate to work on some of the most challenging and rewarding visual effects projects around,” Weigert said. “I try to instill a sense of innovation into everything I do from both an artistic and technological standpoint. This ethos fits perfectly with Method’s goals and I’m excited to work with such talented artists, producers and support crew, and help build on all they have achieved.”
