Press Release from Crawford Post Productions
Jim Bowhall returns to Crawford Post Production as creative director. Leading a team of artists, he collaborates with clients to develop storyboards and cultivate ideas while working on agency, corporate and broadcast projects. Jim is an award-winning editor, compositor, motion graphics designer and 3D animator. High-profile work includes The Coca-Cola Company, The Weather Channel, Krystal, GA Lottery, Yamaha, The National Geographic Channel and many others.
Jim approaches his craft from an animator's perspective, bringing an advanced level of detail and motion to his work which is often described as fluid and contemporary. Crawford Post clients and post team gain another creative point of view as Jim's expertise broadens the possibilities for top-notch visual/graphic (VFX/GRFX) design on branding and marketing initiatives.
"There are a lot of talented people here," says Jim. "As creative director, I will use my experience and client relationships to build and grow the VFX/GRFX department. Crawford Post has the infrastructure, size and support to meet the challenges of an ever-changing design and VFX market."
"He goes into every project from a highly collaborative position and works very well with agencies as well as other clients to meet their goals," says Kathleen Fitch, Vice President of Post Production for Crawford.
In 2008, Jim partnered with three other animators and formed Delavici Sarto Productions for the Atlanta 48 Hour Film Project. The effort paid off when "The Weather Report" -- a seven minute, stop-motion short film -- received acclaimed recognition and awards.
Over the last three years, Jim has been busy as creative director and partner for the Lvngrm, an editorial and VFX boutique in Midtown Atlanta. Prior to that, he worked at Crawford Post for 12 years, honing his talent in Avid, Flame/Inferno, Fire/Smoke/Combustion, 3ds Max and Adobe Creative Suite.
