CHICAGO — Creative production studio Flavor (www.flavor.tv) has added Rob Churchill to its Chicago staff as VFX director. According to Cutters Studios, which is a partner studio to Flavor, the announcement also involves Churchill becoming a partner in the launch of a new production venture, which will be announced in the days to come.
A Chicago native, Churchill has established himself as a top-tier VFX director over the past two decades, most recently with Carbon VFX since its 2018 acquisition of Filmworkers. His VFX experience and formal training for character animation has kept him in high demand. He has served as a key collaborator behind campaigns for Capital One, Allstate, Apple, Budweiser, McDonald’s, Samsung, State Farm, and many other Fortune 100 brands. Churchill is also increasingly involved in projects as a director.
“The editors at Cutters are the best of the best,” Churchill notes. “Throughout my career, I have worked with them all on some really amazing projects. I am thrilled to do that again, alongside all of the creative and talented artists at Flavor.”
Churchill designed visual effects for IFC Films’ An Acceptable Loss, from Chicago writer/director Joe Chappelle. The dramatic feature starring Tika Sumpter and Jamie Lee Curtis currently appears on Amazon Prime and Showtime.
