Flame artist joins Method's rapidly expanding Creative Finishing division

Los Angeles, CA - Visual effects company


has hired Flame artist Pete Mayor to join its expanding Creative Finishing division, which specializes in fast, creative approaches and out-of-the-box thinking for high-end commercial post, most recently completing a series of spots for the Domino's "Source" campaign. Mayor comes to Method after a highly successful tenure at Los Angeles-based Chemical Effects (formerly Vendetta Post), where he worked on many high-profile campaigns for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority ("What Happens in Vegas") and Southwest Airlines ("Bags Fly Free").

"Pete is an incredible addition to the department," enthused Method's Creative Finishing executive producer Robert Owens. "He has been a senior-level artist for fifteen years and is one of the top people in the country on the Flame. And he also has those additional qualities that make a great finishing artist--he is incredibly fast, resourceful and has the experience and temperament to interface with clients even in high-pressure situations." "We are very excited to have Pete on board," added creative director Claus Hansen. "The department has already become a major force within the industry with our incredible roster of talent, five Flames and two Smokes." "Method's extraordinary reputation for visual effects really piqued my interest," Mayor noted. "They work on some very big projects, often with bigger effects, which is the realm I want to work in. At Method I will also have access to their incredible infrastructure--equipment, producers and other artists--so I will have every possible option at my disposal during the creative finishing process. "I really don't anticipate that clients will come along with any request that we can't handle," Mayor concludes.
