SMOKE AND MIRRORS APPOINT SENIOR ARTIST

SMOKE and Mirrors, high-end post-house, have announced that Robert Moggach has joined the company.
Moggach has been appointed as a Senior Inferno Artist. Moggach, who joins Smoke and Mirrors from Calibre Digital in Toronto, has skills in advanced compositing and CG animation techniques as well as experience in film-resolution imaging and visual effects supervision.
Penny Verbe, Smoke and Mirrors Facility Director, said: “Smoke and Mirrors is well known for delivering creativity and innovation. Robert’s considerable talent for crafting effects and animation will complement the skills of our existing Inferno team. Having experience in film effects and 3D character animation too, he’s also more than qualified to become involved in the pre-production of complex jobs, and to assist on client shoots as a VFX supervisor.”
In the last year Moggach led teams of up to 30 digital artists through the execution of more than 900 effects shots for a range of film, long-format and commercials projects.
Moggach said: “Smoke and Mirrors has a great reputation as a creatively driven studio, and the senior artists are widely recognised as having helped to develop the flame software. While there’s a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, it’s totally professional here and they are always pushing back boundaries both creatively and technically.”
