Venice, California-based VFX house Brewster Parsons continues its path to growth through staff additions, facility and technology updates, and global partnerships. Most recently they added VFX vet Jason Cohon as senior producer.
Cohon has experience creating and finishing all types of visual content. Working working at Asylum, Brand New School, Digital Domain, Mirada and Sway Studio, he has produced live-action and VFX-intensive feature, television, commercial and experiential projects working with directors such as Dante Ariola, Nicolai Fuglsig, Joseph Kosinski and Rupert Sanders.
At Brewster Parsons, he now joins CG/VFX supervisor TJ Burke, who has 24 feature film credits and has worked with Hydraulx and ILM; VFX supervisor and lead Flame artist Louis Mackall, another former Hydraulx talent; and VFX supervisor and lead Flame artist Andrew Eksner, who has spent time at Digital Domain and Method.
“Brewster Parsons is equal parts VFX/design/finishing facility and lifestyle brand,” says Cohon. “It’s rare in our industry to find a company that believes as strongly in the quality of their product as they do in their employees’ quality of life. I think that shows through in the artistry and in the overall great attitude of everyone who works here.”
Over the past year, Brewster Parsons has opened a new finishing suite on its Abbot Kinney premises in Venice, and also forged strategic relationships with other leading facilities. Among those is Ollin VFX in Mexico City, which mainly works on features and has handled many projects for David Fincher, and leading Barcelona VFX shop Furia Digital. Over the past 18 months, both companies have contributed to Brewster Parsons projects for Royal Caribbean.
