MPC LA has brought Jason Schugardt aboard as head of 3D. Over the span of his 19-year VFX career, Schugardt has worked on an impressive body of work in both commercials and feature films. He brings on-set and supervisory experience from across the globe, having spent time at leading boutiques and large facilities including Sony Imageworks, Weta Digital, MPC Film, Asylum VFX, and most recently, Method Studios.
Schugardt’s extensive background in 3D and knack for developing new VFX techniques has led him to work on such notable ad projects as Skittles’ Super Bowl 2015 spot “Settle It” directed by Dante Ariola, and Sonos’ “Face Off” Super Bowl 2014 spot directed by Mark Romanek. Schugardt has also led projects for Acura and Time Warner Cable for director Nicolai Fuglsig as VFX supervisor, and Kia and EA Battlefield for director Noam Murro as CG supervisor.
Among Schugardt's notable feature achievements, Schugardt has worked on four Oscar-winning films including David Fincher’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and Peter Jackson’s “King Kong.”
