MPC Amps Up High-End VFX Team with Ng and Skeffington Hires
MPC continues to amp its premier VFX capabilities, this time with the addition of Gigi Ng as VFX supervisor/Flame artist, and John Skeffington as senior producer. Ng and Skeffington will both work out of MPC’s New York office.
“We are proud to welcome two exceptional talents to the already strong MPC New York roster,” noted MPC NY MD Justin Lane. “Gigi is an all-around VFX powerhouse and is a strong emerging talent in NYC. She’s spent the last seven years powering-up at The Mill – we’re excited to take her to the next level and see what she does next with her outstanding abilities.”
Lane continued, “In John, we have an energetic, talented collaborator who is universally respected by his clients and peers. John worked with us briefly as a freelancer and from his first day we knew he was a great fit with our team and culture. John possesses a rare mix of ferocious creative energy and cool-headed professional calm, that makes working with him an absolute pleasure.”
Ng, whose expertise includes VFX, compositing and supervision, has worked on campaigns for Emerson, Johnnie Walker, Gillette, Mercedes, AT&T, Jordan Brand, and Barclays. Her agency collaborations include BBDO, Merkley + Partners, The Directors Bureau, Wieden+Kennedy, and Venables Bell & Partners. Ng’s lead Flame work for an OFFF campaign earned a Cannes Gold Lion in Design for Animation.
Skeffington has worked on campaigns for Budweiser, Mentos, PUMA, Converse, Rolex, M&M’s, GE, and Givenchy, among other high-profile clients. He has collaborated with an array of top agencies, including Anomaly, JWT, Droga5, The Martin Agency, BBDO and BBH.
Both Ng and Skeffington are at work on soon-to-be-released projects.
