NEW YORK CITY — VFX supervisor Tobey Lindback is bringing his sharply-honed skills and two decades of experience to creative studio Carbon (carbonvfx.com), which has locations in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. He spent the last 10 years at The Mill, Psyop and MPC, leading high profile creative work for the likes of Audi, Budweiser, Mercedes, Mountain Dew, Nike and PlayStation. In his new role at Carbon, Lindback will work closely with clients to perfect their vision.
Known equally as a trusted on-set advisor and for using his sharp eye for color, composition and final picture, Lindback has worked with director Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Night at the Museum) on Dick’s Sporting Goods’ most recent holiday campaign, with Ruffian’s Neil Huxley on Warner Bros.’ Shadow of War: Friend or Foe interactive trailer, and with Oliver Würffell on Cadillac’s Take Flight, from their Oscars 2019 campaign.
“Tobey’s creative and technical skills have seen him work on some of the most major league productions out there,” notes Liam Chapple, executive creative director at Carbon. “He is used to leading big teams and is so respected and passionate about what he does. I can’t wait to see his artistry shine through in our Carbon projects.”
“Carbon today is the perfect place for anyone with drive, passion and vision,” says Lindback. “I love the recent work directed by Liam and the way it melds design, motion graphics and VFX together. I like to be a creative partner that my clients can rely on to make decisions with and can trust with their visuals. My favorite part of any project is putting the creative puzzle together, ensuring everyone gets what they want, but then going beyond what people imagined it could be. I’m here to present smart solutions in this ever-moving industry, and above all, I want to make the work memorable. There are certainly exciting times ahead!”
