Vfx artist tapped to head feature films unit

Vfx artist Mark Stetson has joined Zoic Studios as head of its feature films unit.

A veteran who has been working in effects since the late 70’s, Stetson’s career includes the creation of miniature effects for such films as “Blade Runner,” “Ghostbusters,” “Batman Returns,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “The Hudsucker Proxy.” As a vfx supervisor/consultant he worked on “The Fifth Element” the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and “Superman Returns.” Additional credits include “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind – The Special Edition” and “Escape from New York.”

“Mark is an incredible addition to Zoic,” said co-founder Chris Jones. “We look forward to his creative leadership and the evolution of feature film within the company.”

“I like the challenge of expressing a new vision for a director, getting inside his or her head and figuring out what they want,” said Stetson. “I want to make the visual effects more than they expected and first dreamed about. That is my goal here at Zoic, to… build a team to expand Zoic’s role in feature films.”

Zoic Studios’ feature film work includes “Grown Ups,” “District 9,” “Takers,” “Zombieland,” “Talladega Nights,” “Spider-Man 2” and the upcoming “Burlesque.”
