VFX studio Electric Theatre Collective LA has hired Martin Karlsson as head of 2D.  Electric maintains studios in London and Los Angeles.

Karlsson joins from The Mill, where he spent the last eight years working in both L.A. and London. During his time there he worked with acclaimed directors such as Alma Har’el, Fredrik Bond, Saam Farahmand and Warren Fu, building a body of work that includes projects for Nike, Lexus, A Tribe Called Quest, Titanfall and the feature film Honey Boy, which premiered at Sundance in January 2019, and has since been picked up by Amazon. As a lead VFX artist he has created visually stunning work such as Coca-Cola’s “The Wonder of Us,” Game of War’s “Unite the World” and Marvel “Strike Force.”

Tiffani Manabat, managing director of Electric Theatre Collective LA, said, ‘Unearthing the right talent for our studio isn’t an easy task.. It’s all about finding the right person whose values align with Electric’s. In Martin, we’ve found that. As well as being a fantastic artist, he really understands the importance of leadership and mentoring, and he’s excited to jump in.”
