People on the Move
- LOS ANGELES
Flavor has added Joshua Studebaker to its L.A. staff as CG supervisor.
For more than eight years, Studebaker has been a go-to freelance CG artist in the L.A. marketplace, specializing in design, animation, dynamics, lighting/shading and compositing via Maya, C4D, Vray/Octane, Nuke and After Effects. A frequent collaborator with Flavor and its brand and agency partners, Studebaker has also worked with Alma Mater, Arsenal FX, Brand New School, Buck, Greenhaus GFX, Imaginary Forces and We Are Royale in the past five years alone.
In his new role with Flavor, Studebaker oversees visual effects and 3D services across the company’s global operations. Flavor EP Darren Jaffe stated, “Our creative capacity and our capabilities are growing as a global studio, and bringing Josh in to help shape our pipeline across multiple offices will be invaluable to maximizing our creativity and production expertise to benefit every partner, artist and project.”
Flavor’s talents in its Chicago, Los Angeles and Detroit studios have direct access to color-grading, VFX and picture finishing technologies like Autodesk Lustre and Flame Premium, for starters. Also, Flavor as part of the Cutters Studios’ family can access that network’s talents and full-service production/post-production operations--in those cities, and in New York, Tokyo and Kansas City.
Studebaker said, “I see Flavor as a place to grow my creative and design skills, as well as help bring more standardization to our process in house,” he explained. “My vision is to help Flavor become more agile and more efficient, and to do our best work together.”
