NEW YORK CITY—Fancy VFX, a new visual effects studio targeting television, film and advertising projects, has launched as a sister company to Goldcrest Post.
Led by veteran Executive Creative Director/Visual Effects Supervisor Randie Swanberg (pictured left) and Senior Flame Artist/Visual Effects Supervisor Mario Caserta (pictured right), the studio offers complete solutions for the design, execution and delivery of high-caliber visual effects. Along with a physical base within Goldcrest Post’s facility in Manhattan, Fancy VFX supports a secure virtual pipeline, allowing it to quickly add talent and resources to meet specific project requirements.
Fancy VFX will team with Goldcrest Post to provide packaged visual effects and post-production services for episodic television, independent film and similar projects. It will also pursue projects independently, especially in the advertising realm.
Along with Swanberg and Caserta, Fancy VFX’s lead staff includes CG Supervisor Todd Peleg, Head of Production Alex Tracy and Executive Producer/Director of Sales Graham Dunglinson. The studio occupies an entire floor at Goldcrest’s facility, which is equipped with VFX and CG workstations, storage systems and other gear set up in separate pipelines for advertising and entertainment projects. The studio is also leveraging the latest cloud and virtual machine technology to support remote production.
