It has been a fantastic evolving year at FADP since our move to the vibrant Park Street strip, and we are delighted to welcome 2 talented new members of staff to the team. Our recent expansion over two floors allows us to utilise a new technology and integrate an exciting Motion Capture Suite - watch this space! In order to facilitate the influx of interest from within the industry and prospective clients, we are really pleased and excited to have Mika Peck and Luka Bajt on board.
As a marketing undergrad from UWE, Mika brings a fresh-thinking approach and aims to increase awareness of FADP through his role as Digital Marketing Executive. His previous work experience reflects skills acquired in sales and customer-facing roles, however he is now keen to develop and apply his business and marketing skills in a real life organisation - and what better situation than at a young and aspirational company such as FADP! On a personal level, Mika is not unfamiliar with the creative industry, having been involved in campaigns and projects assisting freelance creatives. We're certain the combination of his practical skills and interests will prove a success here at FADP.
Here is a link to a short video Mika provided creative contribution towards within the pre-production phase of the project, and also stars in! We love the contrasts and strong depth of field used here:
Our second new team member Luka graduated UWE with a distinction as a Master of Arts in Animation. He went on to complete a VFX course at the Animation Workshop in Denmark, developing his skills in creating photorealistic computer graphics and the seamless integration into live action footage. Luka has won multiple honors & awards for his short films, and also holds a passion for photography and video editing. Luka will contribute an expert touch and beautifully executed craftsmanship to our 3d productions.
Here is a link to a short documentary Luka filmed, which won the 'Winner of the Best of South West Short' award at Encounters Film Festival 2013. We love the animation and timelapses here, and the way in which the story has been conveyed so effectively:
It's also worth checking out Luka's personal website, where he showcases some fantastic computer graphics and stop motion animation showreels! http://lukabajt.com/
