NEW YORK, NY – ArsenalFX Color has expanded its team, adding new talent to support the company’s newly bolstered service offerings, bringing on VP of Business Development Cortney Haile to spearhead the expansion of ArsenalFX Color’s VFX department, extending the company’s offerings to include scripted VFX and on-set supervision. Additional key hires include Chief Engineer Albert Soto and Senior Colorist J.R. Benson.
The company will fuse its decade of expertise in 2D compositing VFX and other high-end post production services with the longstanding careers of its new team to offer on-set supervision for scripted visual effects. Already established as a premium full service post production company, the expansion will allow their partners to retain both 2D and 3D VFX services under one roof, maximizing efficiencies and cost-savings.
The growth will further inject ArsenalFX Color’s Los Angeles and Atlanta strongholds into projects for the shifting entertainment landscape across New York and Vancouver. Having offered remote work services since 2012, the studio was equipped to leverage their longstanding business model for clients moving remotely in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Haile brings over 15 years of experience in the content space producing visual effects for commercials, tv shows, and feature films.
Soto, an engineer and IT director for film and entertainment for over two decades, has held numerous Director and Chief Engineer posts.
Benson is a well-versed colorist of over 25 years who has worked on a wide range of titles from single camera dramas and comedies to multi camera sitcoms and feature films.
