LOS ANGELES — VFX studio Ntropic (www.ntropic.com) has appointed Dave White head of CG for its New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco offices. White previously worked with studios that include Psyop, Mass Market and MPC, where as head of CG he oversaw Los Angeles and New York departments, as well as global offices in India.
A fine artist, White traveled the world creating large graffiti murals in his younger years. His keen eye for design aided him from his humble beginnings in the production world to his current place as a leader in the CG community, with work for brands like Audi, Reebok, General Electric and Pepsi.
“I originally got into post production out of pure excitement and enthusiasm about the aesthetic and the creative,” White says. “The technology side came in the second phase of my career when I started to take more of an interest in critical pieces of CG like pipeline and rigging. In recent years, creating a company culture that enhances the lives of artists has become what I love.”
As Ntropic expands its VFX capabilities, White’s passion, knowledge, and experience will be a valuable asset in ensuring that the studios employ not only the most talented artists, but the most fulfilled.
“I want to see people really happy and excited to come to work, and set them up to succeed in an environment where they will take on new challenges, work on projects that inspire them, and grow as an artist and individual,” says White.
White is based at Ntropic’s Los Angeles office but will bring guidance to teams in all offices, and add valuable insight to projects for clients around the country.
