We’ve been busy over the last few weeks fleshing out the crew and various team positions, and we’re proud to introduce several new team members:
- Billy Summers – Director of Photography: Billy is an award winning Director of Photography based out of Seattle. He has worked on everything from Multi-Million dollar Ad Campaigns and Feature Films to micro budget handmade Art Installations and Music Videos. With Billy’s guidance, Novos will now be shot on the Epic system, RED’s new, state-of-the-art camera. To give you an idea what the camera is capable of, there’s some guy in New Zealand shooting a cool little indie film called The Hobbit using the Epic. So it should work for Novos.
- Kirill Kozyrev – Character Concept Artist: To help us get through the last major design push leading up to principal photography, we’ve brought on Kirill to finish up the character designs. Kirill is a self-taught artist, based in Moscow, with a passion for game-development and film production. Currently he’s working as a freelance concept artist and illustrator for a multiple projects, including Novos and the steam-punk MMOG “Sky2Fly”.
- Lucy Carpenter – CG Environment Artist: A marine biologist turned CG artist, Lucy currently works for Google and on video games and short films, obsessively building 3D props and environments and making textures for these objects in Photoshop.
