FSM adds Halo Pictures to Sydney operation
FSM, one of Australia's leading film and television post production companies, has rolled animation studio Halo Pictures into its operations, rapidly expanding the company's digital animation capacity.
Under the FSM umbrella, Halo will be run by the FSM head of digital animation, Andreas Wanda and creative director Emile Rademeyer.
The Halo brand will gradually transition into the FSM team, who will continue Halo's highly regarded animation work in film, TVCs, music videos and home-grown indie short films.
Says Rick Schweikert, FSM managing director: "We're thrilled about migrating Halo into the FSM business - it's a brand and style known for its creative skill and passion for animation. Our immediate priority is getting to know Halo's clients and ensuring the projects currently in progress are delivered seamlessly."
Halo was established by partners Chris and Lisa Hauge in 2000. After many successful years together, including working with Ridley Scott, Laika and some of the world's largest ad agencies, the pair will leave the business to pursue new artistic ventures.
Lisa Hauge, Halo executive producer said: "FSM is a production house that shares the same level of passion, service and depth of experience as Halo. Our ongoing clients will be extremely happy with what is a seamless integration of services."
Chris Hauge will continue to expand his artistic direction with his first sculpture commission commencing in the coming months.
Chris Hauge, Halo creative director said: "I have worked with some phenomenal talent over the years and know this will continue whether in sculpting, painting or animation. I'm looking forward to a shared and collaborative future with many creatives, including FSM."
