Award-winning post-production company Smoke & Mirrors has appointed Paolo Moscatelli as Visual Effects Supervisor, tasked with heading up the company’s growing CG department in Bangkok. This latest boost to S&M’s international team comes shortly after the hiring of Donna Head as Executive Producer in London.
“The potential we now have as a global group is incredible, and we see this as another step towards meeting the needs of our international client base. And as an added bonus, [Moscatelli] is a fully certified sommelier, which means we finally have someone to look after our wine cellar!” said Bangkok Managing Director Matthew Szabo.
A member of the Visual Effects Society, Moscatelli joins S&M from Finito!, where he spent six years carving out a reputation as one of Asia’s leading creative talents. As well as his long experience in Asia, he has also enjoyed successful spells in France, Italy, and an impressive 14 years in Los Angeles. As former Digital Supervisor at Hammerhead Productions, he worked on blockbuster movies including 2 Fast 2 Furious, Herbie Fully Loaded, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Chronicles of Riddick, Wanted and 2012. Moscatelli also served as a Senior Technical Director at Sony Pictures Imageworks.
