“I’ve worked with Method as both a client and an employee and have watched them grow into an amazing vfx company that’s hitting critical mass, with strategic expansions in key markets worldwide to deliver top-quality work with great efficiency,” Brevig said of the new job. “I speak the same language as the filmmakers, and look forward to bridging the gap between the high-tech achievements that happen behind the scenes and the physical realities of production, as Method continues to raise the bar for digital artistry and innovation across vfx, digital humans, real-time production, and mixed reality.”
Brevig’s three-decade career in the industry includes 15 years at George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic. Credits include over 30 features as a vfx supervisor/second unit director, including Men in Black, The Island, and The Maze Runner. In the director’s chair, Brevig was behind 2008’s action-adventure Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D, which was the first narrative live-action feature shot entirely in digital 3d, and the 2010 cg-animated/live action hybrid film Yogi Bear, based on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon.
Another facet of Brevig’s career is crafting immersive effects for theme park experiences like Universal Studios’ Race Through New York, which debuted in 2017, and Disney’s Honey I Shrunk the Audience and Captain EO. On the tv front, Brevig recently served as vfx supervisor for Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Method Studios’ recent credits include Warner Bros. Aquaman and Tomb Raider, Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, A Wrinkle in Time, and Black Panther; and Netflix’s Okja. The company is working on a variety of upcoming titles including John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, Godzilla: King of Monsters, and Men in Black: International.
