Burbank-based visual effects studio VFX Legion has signed lead matte painter Marc Adamson, head of simulation and dynamics Eric Ebling, and lead lighter Bryan Shepperd to its team. The artists bring a mix of skill-sets to the company, which specializes in augmenting footage for feature films and episodic television shows with photorealistic environments and CG imagery that would be too expensive and time-consuming to shoot live.
An alumnus of Framestore, Method, and Prime Focus, Adamson honed his skills on a long list of feature films such as Avengers Age of Ultron, Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy, Dracula Untold, and Dredd.
Signed on to head up VFX Legion’s simulation & dynamics department, Ebling created VFX for high-profile films, such as G.I. Joe Retaliation, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Fast & Furious and Van Helsing.
Skilled at crafting 3D lighting and striking an aesthetic balance that enhances the look and texture of atmospheres, Shepperd’s talents have been tapped by a variety of studios, including Furious FX and Zoic Studios.
