Hey Blog Readers!
It’s been a minute since we’ve updated this space. Truth is, there’s been a lot going on here at The Molecule and we’re pumped to tell you about it all.
First of all, the biggest news… The Molecule just had a pretty huge birthday. We’re 10 years old! There have been a lot of changes in the VFX industry that we’ve been able to see take place over the last decade, and it’s been amazing to watch it all happen. You can check out more about our anniversary in the latest Post New York Alliance Newsletter.
2015 has been keeping us on our toes, and with the influx of new features, TV series, and interactive projects, we had to expand our territory to fit all of the artists and personnel we need to make it all happen. Check out our new home for our Motion Graphics and 3D team down the hall! They get to watch the sunset over Jersey every day… those on the east side of the building are jealous.
Speaking of new spaces, The Molecule’s LA office will be moving to Hollywood Production Center in May. We’re really excited for this, and thrilled to be in the mix with some like-minded post-production folks.
We kicked off the year in Barcelona for the HTC One M9 unveiling at Mobile World Congress, and produced the following video for their Keynote:
Molecule Compositor Henry Jean was just visiting Taiwan where he said the video was playing in almost every taxicab he took.
We joined the Post New York Alliance at SXSW in Austin in March, and we had a blast talking about the New York post-production scene to talented people from all over the world.
In TV land, we were thrilled when “The Affair” won the Golden Globe for Best Television Series. We produced VFX for two big Netflix hits, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Bloodline,” and were proud to be a part of two new envelope-pushing primetime shows “The Slap” (NBC) and “American Crime” (ABC). We continued on new seasons of “Sirens” (USA), “The Americans” (FX), and just started work on the final season of “Royal Pains” (USA).
This Sunday is a big day – a double header on Showtime where The Molecule produced VFX for mainstay “Nurse Jackie” and newcomer “Happyish.” More info to come on Happyish – there’s been a truckload of animation going on over here that we’re really excited about.
Film! Run All Night was a pleasure to work on, as we always love any opportunity to add plenty of bullets, blood, and muzzle flashes to Liam Neeson films. Coming up this summer is Love & Mercy, directed by Bill Pohlad, a biopic about Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys. The trailer gave us all the feels:
Films that are currently in the works include Money Monster, Rock The Kasbah, Ricky and the Flash, and The Runner.
Lots of late nights and Bareburger orders have definitely been keeping us busy, but it has been a great 2015 so far, and there is a lot of amazing stuff to come.
