Production studio Flavor has added the flame artist Blake Huber to its Los Angeles staff as VFX supervisor.
Huber has worked in the VFX industry for 15 years. He started as a 2D animator working with Fuel and Brand New School, where he used Autodesk‘s Flame from a design perspective. His approach to visual effects focuses on experimentation and attention to detail.
“Blake is ridiculously talented, incredibly passionate and has a skillset that is truly extraordinary,” said Darren Jaffe, executive producer at Flavor. “After working with him often over our first year, we found that his perspective, skills and knowledge are invaluable. He is adept at working on large VFX projects with all the explosions and magic, as well as deftly adding his touch to more subtle images to make them shine.”
Most recently, Huber was lead Flame artist for MPC. Prior to that he freelanced with Flavor and other design/VFX companies, including Big Block, Digital Domain and Logan. Consistently working hand-in-hand with directors and creative directors on major commercial spots for the likes of Discover Card, Geico and Samsung, Huber also serves as VFX supervisor on live-action shoots. A past staff member at Charlex and Brand New School, Huber is a graduate of Indiana University Bloomington. He has garnered BDA Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards, and the AIGA Certificate of Excellence.
