“Our Los Angeles operations continue to grow and contribute
to some of the best shows on television,” says FuseFX President David Altenau.
“We are very excited to welcome Dan and Sam who bring incredible experience and
talent, as well as a passion for excellence. They will help to ensure that we
continue to deliver spectacular results for our clients.”

Hail, Caesar!; Horrible Bosses 2; The
Hangover (Parts 2 and 3); Reign of Fire; Heaven is for Real
and Gangster Squad, among others.
Previously, he spent many years as a supervisor at Hammerhead Productions,
Disney, Cinesite, Warner Bros., Digital Dimension and elsewhere.

Levitan’s life-long passion for photography is reflected in
the filmic look of his visual effects designs and his desire to materialize the
client’s vision as authentically as possible. He is excited to apply those
skills to episodic television projects at FuseFX. “It’s a great time to be in
television,” he said. “I’m extremely excited about the shows that are in
production and being green lit. The quality of work that FuseFX is able to
deliver and the way the studio is run makes it an amazing environment to work

Edwards’ career in visual effects also spans more than 20
years. He ran a VFX boutique in New York for more than a decade, primarily
servicing advertising clients. He later spent five years as an Inferno artist
and compositor at Industrial Light & Magic. His credits include three films
that won Academy Awards for visual effects (Pirates
of the Caribbean: Dead’s Man Chest
, The
Curious Case of Benjamin Button
and Avatar).
His Emmy nomination for Cosmos: A
Spacetime Odyssey
came in 2014. His television credits as VFX Supervisor
include The Newsroom and Shameless.

“My number one responsibility is to the script,” said
Edwards of his role in television. “My job is to read what is on the page and
find opportunities where visual effects can help tell the story more
effectively. My focus is not on the biggest effects, but rather on those that
are going to produce the most dramatic results.”
Edwards added that he was attracted to FuseFX by the caliber
of television shows it services. “It’s an amazing opportunity to work with
talented crews and production teams, and to make great pictures,” he stated.
