Artjail expands CG department

LOS ANGELES — Artjail (, the boutique VFX studio with locations in New York and Los Angeles, has expanded its CG department by welcoming Anthony Thomas as CG supervisor in LA, and Beat Reichenbach as lead pipeline technical director/CG generalist, working with both New York and LA, and also tending to LA for pipeline and CG needs.

Thomas spent the past 14 years freelancing for the likes of The Mill, Framestore, Parliament, Hello Scholar and CosaVFX, across films, commercials, television, music videos and video games. His career highlights include a Honda Super Bowl commercial, for which he replaced live sheep heads with digitally animated singing heads. He’s also lent his talents to DirecTV’s Wonder spot with Serena Williams, and MGM’s Bet with Vanessa Hudgens.

Reichenbach joins Artjail after spending the majority of his career at Blur, leading teams in scene assembly, with a focus on lighting and environment modeling. Collaborating extensively with the pipeline department, he also served as a liaison between artists and developers. While at Blur, he worked on the reboot of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise, for which he and the team contributed close to one hour of realistic in-game cinematics.

“As Artjail grows, we are focused on bringing in talent that fits our brand and ethos,” explains John Skeffington, MD at Artjail. “Anthony and Beat are both incredible hires for us. I’ve been following their careers for some time. Anthony’s work speaks for itself. He has a great attitude and is a strong problem solver. Beat has a bit of wizard in him. He will take our already robust pipeline to the next level, as well as work on select high end projects with his CG capabilities. Having Beat on the team ensures New York and LA will be working more streamlined and efficiently.”
