Virtuoso Flame Artist Blake Huber Joins Expanding Team at Flavor Los Angeles as VFX Supervisor


By thelaegotist / / Blake Huber has been added to the Flavor Los Angeles staff in the position of VFX Supervisor. Over the past 15 years, Huber has established himself as one of the most sought-after VFX artists in the country. Based on his start as a 2D animator working with FUEL and Brand New School, his introduction to using Autodesk’s Flame was from the design perspective. As a result, his unique approach to visual effects focuses on experimentation and attention to detail. “Blake is ridiculously talented, incredibly passionate, and has a skillset that is truly extraordinary,” Executive Producer Darren Jaffe began. “After working with him often over our first year, we found that his perspective, skills and knowledge are invaluable. He is adept at working on large VFX projects with all the explosions and magic, as well as deftly adding his touch to more subtle images to make them shine.” Jaffe continued, “Here at Flavor, we want to offer a point of view and be a tremendously resourceful partner. Blake embodies all of that completely.” Most recently, Huber was lead Flame artist for MPC, and prior to that, he had been freelancing with Flavor and other leading design/VFX companies, including Big Block, Brand New School, Digital Domain and Logan, since 2013. Consistently working hand-in-hand with top directors and creative directors on major commercial spots for the likes of Discover Card, Geico and Samsung, Huber also serves as VFX supervisor on live-action shoots, bringing him a breadth of knowledge that extends well beyond the studio. A past staff member at Charlex and Brand New School, Huber is a graduate of Indiana University Bloomington, and so far, his artistry has garnered BDA Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards, and the AIGA Certificate of Excellence.
