Visual effects and design studio Artemple-Hollywood has expanded its in-house team with the addition of two industry veterans.
Richard Kidd is joining the company as creative director/senior VFX supervisor. Most recently, Kidd was the on-set visual effects supervisor/visual effects producer for 20th Century Fox‘s romantic drama, The Longest Ride, for director George Tillman, Jr. Kidd was also the VFX supervisor on the client side for Summit Entertainment‘s blockbuster hit film Twilight, and action thriller Man on a Ledge.
Kidd will work on feature films, television, commercials, theme park content, special venue projects, digital content and experiential marketing.
