Global visual effects company Method Studios has promoted Andrew Bell to the new role of managing director, Integrated Advertising and Immersive Experiences, Los Angeles. He’ll oversee operations, production, talent, sales and marketing. In this role Bell brings together all of the L.A. studio’s VFX, finishing, and design capabilities to create integrated solutions for brands, ad agencies and production companies; and also leads its AR/VR group, Method EXP, creating immersive experiences for clients worldwide.
Bell said, “Our clients are creating more content than ever, and it’s important that they have all of our capabilities activated seamlessly across all of it. We’re excited to bring together our creative and technology talent from different teams in new ways; it creates fresh ideas and approaches and elevates everything we do.”
Bell joined Method earlier this year as sr. EP and VP, Advertising Operations. Previously he spent two decades at MPC, first as a producer in London and then spearheading its initial foray into Los Angeles and follow-on expansion and relocation as head of production and managing director. There he oversaw all operations, from bidding to building and managing the talent and client rosters, in addition to working with A-level directors producing large-scale VFX projects for Coca Cola, Nike, DIRECTV and other top brands. Bell was also managing director for Brickyard VFX in Boston, and has consulted on VFX operations for Apple.
