Supervisor at its production facility in Vancouver. Cowley will oversee
production activity at the facility lead its team of VFX Supervisors on projects
including the television series Zoo and
Mist. He brings deep experience as a
manager, supervisor and artist with credits including the blockbusters Furious 7, TRON: Legacy, The Great Gatsby, and District 9. Most recently, he served as a client-side VFX Supervisor

“We are very excited
to bring Jon Cowley on board as our new Head of Production and Senior Visual
Effects Supervisor in Vancouver,” said FuseFX President David Altenau.
 “He will be working closely with Executive Producer Wendy Lanning to lead
the office and continue to improve and grow the studio.”
With a background in industrial engineering, fine arts,
design and animation, Cowley began his career as a computer graphics artist in
his native Toronto with credits including Panic
and Jason X. He earned his
first credit as VFX Supervisor on the Disney television movie A Wrinkle in Time. Since then, he has
acted in supervisory roles on more than 30 motion picture and television
projects with other highlights including Smallville,
Total Recall and Men in Black 3.

“Successful supervision is a blend of decisive leadership and
an eye for the bigger picture,” he says. “We make sequences, not shots. We
create pictures, but we also tell stories. For artists to thrive and deadlines
to be met, VFX has to constantly rebalance, re-evaluate and innovate. It’s my goal
to bring that mindset to every project.”

Cowley is excited to lead the FuseFX Vancouver team in
producing groundbreaking visual effects and to help the studio grow. “It’s an
opportunity to put my 18-years of knowledge and experience to work in a dynamic
production environment,” he said. “We’ve got a tight-knit group of
professionals with a wealth of experience and I look forward to working with
them in building the FuseFX brand.”
