I’m incredibly delighted to announce an expansion of Cartoon Brew’s editorial team, with the addition of two new contributors: Ian Failes and Brian Gabriel.
Ian Failes joins the site as our first dedicated vfx and tech editor. He will cover everything from the latest software tools to CG features to key developments in virtual reality, gaming, and interactive filmmaking.
Ian joins Cartoon Brew from the respected vfx industry resource FX Guide, where he was their senior writer for five years. He is also the author of the recent book, Masters of FX: Behind the Scenes with Geniuses of Visual and Special Effects. His writing skills, knowledge of the visual effects scene, and passion for filmmaking craft are unparalleled, and I look forward to him pushing the site’s coverage in new directions. Ian is based out of Sydney, but travels all over and is currently reporting from the FMX digital art conference in Germany.
