People on the Move
- NEW YORK
Bicoastal content creation studio CVLT Production has expanded its executive suite with the additions of Charles Paek as creative director/VFX supervisor, and Frank Sun as executive producer/creative producer. Both will serve to oversee production and postproduction for client projects based out of New York and Los Angeles.
Paek has been behind award-winning creative projects for clients such as Lexus, Target, Acura, Infiniti, Marvel, Paramount and Tanqueray, while at CBS Broadcasting, HER3SY, Digital Domain and Artifact Studios, among others. Sun brings extensive experience shooting commercials, music videos, feature films and photography for Red Antler and his own production company XY Content, collaborating with clients including Google, Cartier, Norwegian Airlines and Nike.
A longtime filmmaker and VFX supervisor, Paek has distinguished himself in the industry from his early days as a lead designer at CBS Broadcasting to his past work at Digital Domain. Over the years, he cultivated his signature creative style of high-end, photoreal design in all of his projects. In the past decade he has worked as a director, art director and VFX supervisor, earning a VES nomination and a Clio win for his creative projects.
Sun’s career began as a cameraman on the sunny islands of Survivor. He later moved to New York City to pursue a life in filmmaking. His passion for crafting vivid imagery led him to cinematography, where he helmed brand spots, films and music videos. He founded XY Content in 2013 alongside his creative partner, Habib Yazdi, and led a successful collective of roster clients and talent for five years, working with such clients and agencies as Publicis, WPP, McKinney, Red Antler and Google.
