Modus FX Brings Human Touch to Digital Workflow for Parker
In addition to Parker and Mirror Mirror, Brinton served as VFX supervisor for Modus FX on The Avengers and several other Hollywood projects. When on set, Brinton is directly available to the director, watching the video feeds and ensuring that the visual effects shots are optimized for postproduction.
“Generally, we let directors go where they need to go with the story. They’re more comfortable and the process is more organic that way. It’s my responsibility to make sure we get shots that we can work with and I use my judgment about when to step in. This is where the trust and the personal relationship come in. We’re there to support the creative process.”
“If we present a new idea to a client, it’s my job as VFX supervisor to show them how we can do it and why it will work,” Brinton said.
“We brought Wayne on board, not only for his technical gifts as a compositor, but for the way he deals with people,” said Marc Bourbonnais, co-founder and president of Modus FX. “He’s able to bring his team with him to produce high-quality work and is supportive of our clients throughout the project.”
“As a facility Modus is moving quickly toward being in control of the visual effects for entire projects, which is the way I like to work,” Brinton said. “As we take on more and more of the visual effects supervision on projects, the studios and production companies are seeing how well it works, and how much more efficiently we can deliver their shots. We enjoy this level of interaction with the client, and the projects benefit greatly from having a better pipeline. Ultimately everyone wins that way.”
Directed by Taylor Hackford, Parker stars Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez and Nick Nolte. The film saw theatrical release on Jan. 25, 2013.
