People on the Move
- SANTA MONICA, Calif.
AFX Creative has hired Yarin Manes, formerly at The Mill, as head of CG.
With nearly two decades as a VFX artist and lead, Manes is highly skilled in all 3D generalist functions and specializes in look development, lighting, and compositing. His extensive career includes working at high-profile VFX-intensive productions and award-winning CG studios for films, TV, commercials, and music videos. He has turned out work for brands including Apple, Nike, Ford, BMW, Pepsi, Target and Audi. Manes had a CG lead role on the Walmart Super Bowl spot, “Famous Visitors,” which won a VES Award for Outstanding VFX in a Commercial.
Manes will be tasked with helping to expand AFX Creative’s current team with additional top talent and believes it’s important to ensure a high level of culture and connection with everyone involved, even though they all will be working remotely.
AFX Creative EP Nicole Fina is enthused over Manes joining the company’s leadership team. “Yarin brings to the table a robust CG experience in a variety of high-end work, deeply rooted in the advertising space. His blend of creative and technical prowess will help expand our CG capabilities. Yarin has an innate ability to connect with a director’s vision, which has earned him respect from creative teams and artists alike.”
