SANTA MONICA — Design-centric studio Stardust (www.stardust.tv), which has offices in Santa Monica and New York, has launched Falcon, a new, global, creative collective and integrated talent arm. Falcon (http://falcon.tv) is made up of Neon, Assembly and Abdel Abanomous. According to Stardust managing director/partner Dexton Deboree, Falcon is the result of a confluence of ideas born out of an evolving industry.
“Falcon is equal parts creative curiosity and practical solutions to our current and future business,” he explains. “The re-invention of Stardust in this particular moment in time has brought up a wealth of discovery. As the industry re-defines itself on an almost perpetual cycle these days, we find ourselves at a precipice of change, which knows no bounds, but also knows few patterns, less givens and many, many opportunities for exploration and discovering the unknown. To us, that’s very exciting, rather than scary. But, setting up a business around that is a challenge. Falcon allows us to expand our creative reach, talent pool and service offerings to our clients in a way that Stardust alone could not do, not today and not tomorrow. Less than a simple opportunity to represent amazing talent, it’s more of a chance to unite, collaborate and create a force of creative energy that grants our clients a wealth of expansive and eclectic creative solutions within a known entity.”
Stardust will continue to focus on design centric projects while embracing projects outside its scope of perfection via Falcon. This includes heavy CG, character animation and VFX.
Falcon’s creative collective Neon created the businesses first project, an opening title sequence for the Collider conference taking place in New York City. The opening title sequence introduces all of the speakers and panelists for the three-day conference.
