(Los Angeles, California--January 14, 2013) LOOK Effects is delighted to announce they have hired industry veteran and Emmy-award winner, Everett Burrell as Visual Effects Supervisor. Burrell will be based in LOOK’s Los Angeles headquarters office where he will supervise current and future feature film projects, beginning early next month.
Everett brings over 25 of experience to his new position. He began perfecting his craft under effects industry luminaries Stan Winston, Greg Cannom and Rick Baker. Optic Nerve, the makeup effects company founded by Everett and John Vulich, quickly gained attention with their work on such features as George Romero’s The Dark Half
and Tom Savini's remake of Night Of The Living Dead
. Their alien creatures and prosthetic makeups for the successful science fiction television show “Babylon 5,” earned Everett an Emmy. Everett's natural talent for computer graphics led him to join Flat Earth Productions where he was instrumental in producing ground-breaking visual effects for television shows, includding “Hercules,” “Ally McBeal,” “Charmed” and the highly-praised mini-series, “Dune.”
In 2003, to further his experience on feature films, Everett joined premier visual effects company Café FX. His combined experience in practical and digital effects made him an invaluable asset and the perfect liaison between the on-set film production crew and the digital artists back at the studio. He supervised impressive visual effects for such films as Blade III, Sin City, Hellboy
and The Mist
. Everett’s supervision of the visual effects for the ground-breaking Pan's Labyrinth
was instrumental in garnering it the attention, nominations and awards it received. In 2007 Everett left Café to work as a freelance visual effects supervisor. Since then he has been responsible for the jaw-dropping effects on Max Payne, Battle: Los Angeles, Prometheus, Warm Bodies
, and most recently, the highly-anticipated feature, A Good Day To Die Hard
, the latest of the Bruce Willis Die Hard films.
"During my stint as on-set supervisor for Warm Bodies
, I had the opportunity to work with LOOK. I was very impressed with their work and their team,” says Burrell. "Over the years, they’ve done great work and been part of some very interesting projects. 2013 is going to be an exciting year with some outstanding projects on the horizon. I am very honored to have been asked to be part of such an excellent team of producers, supervisors and artists. This will be great fun."
“Everett's experience and expertise, combined with his passion and love of cinema, make him the perfect addition to the LOOK Effects family,” says LOOK’s executive producer/head of production Steve Dellerson. “His impact will be immediate and we're incredibly excited to have him as a valuable member of our team.”
