Paek has worked on creative projects for top-tier clients such as Lexus, Target, Acura, Infiniti, Marvel, Paramount and Tanqueray, while at CBS Broadcasting, HER3SY, Digital Domain and Artifact Studios, among others. Over the years, he has cultivated a signature creative style of high-end, photoreal design. In the past decade he has worked as a director, art director and visual effects supervisor.
Sun brings extensive experience shooting commercials, music videos, feature films and photography for Red Antler and his own production company XY Content. He has collaborated with clients that include Google, Cartier, Norwegian Airlines and Nike. His career began as a cameraman on Survivor. He later moved to New York City to pursue a life in filmmaking. His passion for crafting vivid imagery led him to cinematography, where he helmed brand spots, films and music videos. He founded XY Content in 2013 alongside his creative partner, Habib Yazdi, and led a successful collective of roster clients and talent for five years.
“CVLT has been able to stay ahead of a rapidly-changing industry and create a business model most production companies could only dream of,” says Paek. “Now seems like the perfect opportunity to bring high-end visual effects to the already robust set of services CVLT has been offering clients for the past 10 years.”
“CVLT boasts quality work, access to premium brands, and a diverse range of capabilities,” adds Sun. “From a director/photographer background, I speak to the creative and management on both their live-action and photography production sides -I enjoy being able to float between both roles.”
A longtime filmmaker and VFX supervisor, Paek has distinguished himself in the industry from his early days as a lead designer at CBS Broadcasting to his past work at Digital Domain. Over the years, he cultivated his signature creative style of high-end, photoreal design in all of his projects.
