LOS ANGELES — Bicoastal creative studio Carbon VFX (www.carbonvfx.com) has added to its LA roster, welcoming Matt McManus as executive producer. He spent the last six years heading up his own Los Angeles-based digital VFX/post production company, Kilt Studios, which worked on campaigns for Under Armour, Coors, 2K Sports, and DirecTV. Carbon is a full-service creative studio, specializing in visual effects, motion graphics, and design.
“What attracted me is the great reputation Carbon has and the high level of production value it has maintained through its association with Whitehouse Post,” says McManus. “I was also impressed by the amount of time people have invested in the company. The longevity speaks volumes to the company culture. It is very impressive.”
Along with his entrepreneurial endeavors at Kilt Studios, McManus has led production efforts at a variety of VFX/post production companies, including Method Studios/Riot and Radium. With 20 years’ worth of experience in the VFX/post space, he aims to bring both production skills and business savvy to the EP position.
