Lost Highway Films has entered the VFX/animation arena by signing director Mat Fuller. Fuller has worked as a visual effects artist, on-set VFX supervisor, director, designer and postproduction producer and an editor since 2001.
“Escalating the live-action platform beyond what LHF has been built on was something that always intrigued me,” executive producer Marc Rosenberg explained. “We have amazing directors who continue to collaborate closely with outside partners on live action/VFX and animated projects. But with the advent of higher VFX technology available, I’ve been encouraged to look at rising stars in the VFX community who could work as a stand-alone creative force and take on these innovative assignments.”
Fuller’s commercial work includes spots for Ford, Samsung, Coke, Vizio, Shell, Nokia, Toshiba and Mattel. TV and film credits include visual effects work on NBC’s Numb3rs, lead designer for two feature length documentaries, Westsiders and Bigger Stronger Faster and lead visual effects artist for Tim Allen’s latest TV show Last Man Standing.
“Mat has just designed and animated an original series depicting the irony, haphazardness and complacency of living in a modern world,” Rosenberg said. “Each episode is a standalone, though the entire series has been inked The Title of Show. While there’s been some early network interest, we are planning on a teaser launch in early April on Facebook which I hope will generate further interest in Mat’s unique talents in the advertising universe.”
Fuller has worked with agencies such as McCann Erickson and Y&R on national campaigns, many times from pre-production all the way through post – helping develop the look, feel and postproduction pipeline.
