"Armen has been instrumental in putting Encore VFX on the map and a large reason we've enjoyed such success in the superhero genre to date. With the ECD title, we've essentially just formalized his involvement on projects company-wide, which allows us to lay the ground work in building out the team further," said Tom Kendall, SVP, Encore VFX.

Since joining the company in 2011, Kevorkian has helped grow Encore's VFX operations from a handful of artists that largely did invisible work for projects already being posted in-house to a studio that is behind some of the most impressive VFX in television. While at Encore VFX, his teams earned Emmy and VES Awards for Cinemax's "Banshee," and a Leo Award for "The Flash," in addition to various nominations for work on "Hawaii Five-0." Other projects include "The Tomorrow People," "Hostages," "Homeland," "Ray Donovan," "Unforgettable" and "Castle." Kevorkian started his career in VFX working on projects from the studio side working on shows such as "Ghost Whisperer," "Star Trek: Enterprise," "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Alias."
