WEST HOLLYWOOD - Mark Tobin, formerly a producer for Santa Monica-based visual effects studio Method, has joined A52 as managing director/executive producer.
Tobin, who had been with Method for four years, produced visual effects for spots, including Euro MVBMS's "Blue Men" for Intel and Wieden + Kennedy's "Roswell Rayguns" and "Streaker" for Nike. Tobin also has over 10 years of experience working in New York as a documentary editor for networks including PBS and HBO. He also cut numerous reality TV shows as well as music videos for such notables as Pat Methany.
"It's great to come aboard a visual effects company that has such close ties to editorial," says Tobin, referring to A52's close working relationship with editorial company Rock Paper Scissors. "I like the feeling of reconnecting with my core roots in the business."
