Artists staff POP boutique

Foursome moves over from 525 Post

POP Television has picked up four visual effects artists to constitute the core of a new f/x boutique to be based at Santa Monica post-production shop POP Studios.

The new hires include Alex Frisch as visual effects supervisor/artist, Chris Staves as visual effects artist, Neysa Horsburgh as visual effects producer and Andreas Wacker as director of technology.

The visual effects team, all formerly of 525 Post, will manage commercials, musicvideos, films, trailers, promos and interac-tive titles as they move through the f/x process.

The move reunites the effects artists with ex-525 prexy Jerry Cancellieri, who’s now co-managing director of POP Televi-sion, and with ex-525 CEO Steve Michaels. They’re working with Stefan Sonnenfeld, co-managing director of POP TV, to create the as-yet-unnamed visual effects boutique.
