Appointment Comes as Method Continues Work on Top-Flight Projects Including "Jupiter Ascending" and "Guardians of the Galaxy"
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Method Studios, Deluxe's global visual effects company, has named industry veteran Bill Tlusty as vice president in Vancouver.
Method's Vancouver studio continues to thrive in Canada's visual effects industry, recently attracting major film studio commissions from 20th Century Fox ("The Maze Runner"), Paramount Pictures ("Transformers: Age of Extinction") and The Weinstein Co. ("The Giver"). Tlusty will be responsible for supervising operations and encouraging further growth of the facility, which currently employs more than 200 artists.
Tlusty has worked in the visual effects industry for 16 years and is highly regarded among his peers. Most recently, he served as executive producer for Rhythm & Hues in California, where he was lead executive on movies including VFX Academy Award winner "Life of Pi" and the nominated "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Prior to joining R&H in 2005, Tlusty worked for Industrial Light & Magic, serving on all three "Star Wars" prequels and other blockbusters.
Tlusty's proven track record of working on some of the most iconic VFX films of all time, led him to Method's door.
Said Tlusty: "Method Studios are working on some fantastic productions at the moment, such as 'Jupiter Ascending' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' and it's clear to me that I've landed a fantastic opportunity. We have a very strong talent pool here in Vancouver and across all Method's studios. I aim to take advantage of the artistry and technology that the company has nurtured and build upon that."
