Post-prod'n house hires Babb, Beck

HOLLYWOOD — Digital f/x and post-production house Rhythm & Hues, known for character animation, is bolstering its commercial divison by hiring Paul Babb as live-action executive producer and signing commercial and features director Steve Beck.

R&H also has renamed its spot arm Rhythm & Hues Commercial Studios.

Beck has directed Super Bowl ads the last several years. His feature credits include “Ghost Ship” and “13 Ghosts.” Before joining R&H in late March, Babb helped launch the live-action commercials division at toon shop Klasky-Csupo.

He previously was a senior partner and exec producer in the Los Angeles office of Ogilvy & Mather.

Rhythm & Hues’ film division is in production on Warner’s “Superman Returns” and Disney’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”
