Reel FX, which maintains digital studios in Santa Monica, Calif., and Dallas, has hired Chad Moseley as sr. designer. Moseley has nearly a decade of experience in motion graphics and design, spanning television, advertising and broadcast promos. He comes to Reel FX from Starz Entertainment, where he spent two years as a broadcast designer, concepting and executing promotions for original programming for such series as “Outlander,” “Da Vinci’s Demons” and “Flesh and Bone,” including teasers, spots and graphics packages. His work for top brands such as Enterprise, Nestle, Purina and Busch Gardens has earned him numerous industry accolades including a Gold American Advertising Award (AAA), a Gold Addy Award and an AAF Best of Digital Award.
Jim Riche, Reel FX’s commercial head of production, noted, “From the moment I met Chad I knew he would be a great addition to our growing design and animation team. Not only is his skill set exceptional but his enthusiasm, leadership and his positive attitude were such an influence on our decision to bring him on board.”
Moseley added, “I’ve always really respected the work that Reel FX does and they have such a wealth of talent. It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to join the team. I enjoy collaborating with clients throughout the creative process to bring their ideas to life and I’m looking forward to being able to do that on a wide range of projects at Reel FX.”
Texas native Moseley studied graphic design and 3D animation in Denver. He developed his career in the trenches of production at a Texas news channel, handling the video and graphics for the channel’s website. He quickly amassed a diverse skillset in postproduction, learning the software and techniques through a hands-on, self-taught approach. He expanded his talents in his position of video editor/animator at Denver-based ORCC, later relocating to St. Louis to take a position as sr. mograph/VFX artist at 90 Degrees West. While there, he contributed to post projects from concept through completion for a wide array of national brands including Anheuser Busch, Enterprise and UPS. An opportunity as an in-house broadcast designer at Starz Entertainment led Moseley to Denver in 2014, before returning to Dallas to join the Reel FX team.
