Hollander leaves Pixar for Rhythm & Hues

Vfx supervisor returns to former animation company

Producer Richard Hollander has ankled Pixar to return to Rhythm & Hues Studios.

Hollander, a former president of R&H’s film division, rejoins the company as senior visual effects supervisor for its effects and animation businesses.

His start date is Aug. 2 and he will report to film division prexy Lee Berger, who has held that post since Hollander left.

The exec’s first projects on his return to R&H are likely to be in the vfx service business.

Hollander left R&H four years ago to pursue the opportunity to produce pics for Pixar. He went on to create the short “Presto” for Pixar but no full-length features.

Much has changed at R&H since Hollander left. The company has expanded abroad, moved from Culver City to a larger campus in El Segundo and developed its own feature slate.

R&H is moving toward production on its own features, including a family comedy called “Toad Trip.” (Daily Variety, June 9.)

Hollander’s vfx credits include “Blade Runner,” “The Abyss” and “Titanic.” He has a Scientific & Technical Academy Award as co-developer of Wavefront Advanced Visualizer software.
