Director Ben Hibon has signed on with Psyop Film and Television and will be joining their Vancouver office as the company continues to expand its efforts in the world of feature film and television visual effects, visual development, and creative direction.
Hibon is a celebrated artist and animation director, having designed and directed the lauded Academy Award-nominated The Tale of Three Brothers animated sequence from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. Throughout his career, Hibon has worked as a creative collaborator with a number of notable Hollywood directors, including the dynamic visual storytellers Zack Snyder and Tarsem Singh. Hibon has also recently contributed his skills as a designer to both Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and the Huntsman and Breck Eisner’s The Last Witch Hunter.
In addition to directing short films, Hibon has lent his talents to TV commercials, branded content, and video game projects for clients including Disney, Warner Bros, Universal Pictures, Microsoft, Sony, Activision, Riot Games, and Electronic Arts.
“After spending years competing with him for jobs in the commercial space and admiring his work on film projects, we’re excited to be joining forces to bring our combined strengths to bear on a number of design oriented short and long-form projects,” said Kymber Lim, managing director of Psyop Film and Television which maintains facilities in L.A. and Vancouver.
