Encore Hollywood

is pleased to announce the addition of Mark Intravartolo as Senior Inferno Artist of the company's visual effects department. Intravartolo comes from Prime Focus' Post Logic facility as creative director, North America/senior Inferno artist, where he worked on such projects as director Zack Snyder's upcoming feature, Sucker Punch, as well as the CSI and Law & Order franchises. Previously, he worked for Modern Video Film and the Post Group creating impressive VFX on series such as Desperate Housewives and miniseries John Adams. He is recognized in the industry as a master artist/compositer, with multiple Emmy nominations and a win for his work on the HBO biopic The Life and Death of Peter Sellers. "We're thrilled to have Mark on board," says Bill Romeo, Sr. VP of Ascent Media's Entertainment Television division. "His reputation precedes him. He has done amazing work and been recognized with just about every award there is in the effects field." "I'm very excited to be joining the Encore VFX team," enthuses Intravartolo. "The company has such a great reputation. I feel it has the opportunity to grow further and I look forward to growing with it." Intravartolo, who spent nine years as an editor on sitcoms, commercials and music videos and another 15 in the visual effects realm, explains that the skills he's acquired in both fields often intersect. Editing, he says, "helped me develop a keen sense of timing and of seeing exactly how an individual effect is going to play within a scene. That infuses my VFX work every day." In addition to his VFX virtuosity, Intravartolo also possesses a high level of technical expertise in the area of stereoscopic 3D post, having contributed his skills to a number of 3D feature films, including the James Cameron blockbuster, Avatar. Intravartolo is proficient in Inferno, Flame, Smoke and Avid systems, and has been nominated for multiple Emmys, Monitor Awards, MTV Music Awards and British Design & Art Direction Awards.
