Minneapolis-based creative studio Splice announced that it has hired VFX artist Chris Rainey. Originally from Atlanta, Ga., Rainey is an alumni of the Art Institute of Atlanta with 10 years of experience in the field of animation.
“I had spent the bulk of my career in commercials doing finishing and motion graphics, and Splice gave me an opportunity to move over to VFX,” said Rainey. “I had been looking to make the switch to VFX for some time, but was hesitant to move to Los Angeles or Canada to play the freelance game. Splice was the right combination of great work and great location.”
“There’s a wide range of talent and skill sets at Splice, and it makes the work a lot more fun when you’re doing it with other artists that you respect and can learn from,” he added.
Last year, Splice expanded from just 13 hours of broadcast television/VFX projects to over 60 hours. A big part of that was the studio’s continued work on H2’s America Unearthed, created and produced by Committee Films.
