NEW YORK - Design/production company, UVPhactory, which recently expanded, has added editor/VFX artist Robert Lopuski to its staff.

Lopuski spent 2003 and 2004 as a freelancer, working with a number of New York City-based post houses and agencies. At Kraftworks, Ltd., he functioned as the agency's in-house editor/VFX artist for their corporate clients, cutting and creating effects for spots, portfolios and promos. At Swete Post he served as editor/VFX artist/telecine artist/post supervisor on numerous commercial and broadcast projects.

At the production company Hot Butter Thru Knife, Lopuski was co-editor/post supervisor on the multi-channel documentary feature 60 Cameras Against The War, which is currently being screened at the Whitney Museum of American Art. And at Riot Manhattan, he was a junior VFX artist concentrating on commercial projects.

Before embarking on the freelance life, Lopuski worked on a pilot for Discovery, "In Search of Healing," as editor and sound designer, and on "King of SoHo," a feature-length documentary, for which he was the editor/sound designer and telecine artist.

Earlier in his career, he apprenticed as a telecine artist and was a junior engineer at Company 3. He cut his teeth in the industry at Believe Media/Urban Myth Media, and earlier at Straight Ahead Productions.
