BURBANK — Visual effects supervisor Pat McClung — a two-time Academy Award-nominee — has joined FuseFX (http://fusefx.com), bringing with him more than 30 years of experience. He will act as both an on-set and facility-based VFX supervisor, and is currently working on Scorpion and
The Walking Dead.
McClung’s decision to join FuseFX comes from his desire to focus on television, after a career devoted primarily to feature films. “There is a lot of great work being done in television today,” he says. “I like the quick turnaround and the opportunity to work on a variety of projects with talented crews.”
McClung was first introduced to FuseFX last year and was impressed with their pipeline and efficiency. He began his career as a model and miniature artist with Boss Films. His early credits included Blade Runner, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back and Ghostbusters. He joined Digital Domain in 1993 and earned his first credit as visual effects supervisor on Apollo 13. He later led visual effects teams at Sony Pictures Imageworks and Fox. His Oscar nominations came in 1995 for True Lies and 1999 for Armageddon.
McClung’s resume includes more than 30 feature film and television credits. Recent projects include McFarland, USA; Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day; X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Live Free and Die Hard.
