HOLLYWOOD — Visual effects and design group Muse VFX has opened its doors in the heart of Hollywood, providing services for television, feature films, commercials, special venues and online content. Muse is led by founder/creative director/senior VFX supervisor, John Gross, who was formerly senior executive of Eden FX at Point.360.
Gross (pictured) has developed an efficient workflow for creating high quality visual effects within television’s tight deadlines and budgets. This philosophy and approach is the foundation upon which Muse VFX is built.
“We offer a 4K ready boutique environment with incredibly talented people and powerful tools,” says Gross. “We partner with our clients — from pre-production to delivery — developing and executing solutions that provide the most efficient workflows. But ultimately it’s all about our gifted artists and what they are able to create week after week.”
While at Eden FX at Point.360, Gross oversaw the company’s creation of visual effects. His team created VFX for television and feature films, and recently completed extensive VFX for the IMAX feature Mysteries of the Unseen World and the Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Current Muse television clients include MTV’s Teen Wolf, CBS’s NCIS and Disney’s Dog with a Blog, among others.
“While it may seem to be a volatile time for the formation of a new VFX studio, I’m excited about the potential for the growth of Ultra HD along with new episodic content providers like Amazon, Netflix and Hulu,” he notes.
Muse VFX (www.musevfx.com) is located at 6464 Sunset Boulevard, Suite 500, in Hollywood.
