Cinesite taps four effects exex

Rosen named CTO

Visual effects company Cinesite has ramped up operations, tapping Daniel Rosen chief technology officer and Pat Repola VP of the company’s digital imaging division.

Most recently, Rosen worked as chief animation engineer at DreamWorks, leading the technology operations of both “The Prince of Egypt” and “The Road to El Dorado.” In his new post, he will oversee Cinesite’s tech systems, a wide range of 3-D and 2-D visual effects offerings for film, TV and music videos.

Repola will now be in charge of ensuring Cinesite provides high-quality digital film conversion services, recently beefed up by two new Kodak laser film recorders.

Before teaming with Cinesite, Repola held f/x stints at Industrial Light and Magic and Pacific Ocean Post.

Leading edge

“The new management team brings a fresh outlook, extraordinary talent and technology leadership to Cinesite,” said the firm’s CEO of worldwide operations Colin Brown. “Cinesite is the place to be if you want to be on the leading edge of the digital film frontier.

In other moves, Randy Starr was appointed VP of business development and Kim Shriver-Covate was designated director of operations of Cinesite’s digital imaging department.

Starr hails from Rhythm & Hues, where he worked as a production exec on such films as “Babe: Pig in the City,” “Soldier” “Bedazzled” and “The Sixth Day.”

Shriver-Covate previously served as a digital imaging coordinator at Pacific Ocean Post.
