files/pictures/picture-35.jpgExecutive producers Michael Miller and Rick Wagonheim have joined Rhinoceros Visual Effects and Design, New York, as part of the partnership and management team. The duo will be responsible for expanding and redirecting the fledgling digital studio owned by Multi-Video Group, Ltd. Previously, Miller and Wagonheim worked at R/Greenberg Associates, where they produced many award-winning commercials from 1996-2000. Wagonheim said, "Rhinoceros had done work on one of our R/GA spots and we started talking to (CEO, Multi-Video Group, Ltd.) David Binstock. It was obvious there was tremendous talent at Rhinoceros that was underutilized. Michael and I saw a wonderful opportunity with all the technical support available here to be a leading visual effects studio at Rhinoceros." Miller adds, "Rick's forte is marketing and sales, while mine is producing. As a team we bounce ideas off of each other in an odd couple kind of way until we understand all the intricacies of a job. Also, we'll soon announce the team of artists who have agreed to come on board." Joseph R. Passarella, partner in the Multi-Video Group, said, "We recognize the tremendous vision that both Michael and Rick have. Because of their exceptional talents, Rhinoceros Visual Effects and Design will now present clients with the highest achievements in the visual effects and design arena." Multi-Video Group, Ltd.s owned and associated companies include New York-based Rhinoceros Editorial and Post, Rhinoceros Visual Effects and Design (a Multi-Video Group/Gravity company), Cool Beans Digital Audio, Wall to Wall Films and WAX Music and Sound Design. Associated international companies include Gravity Effects in Tel Aviv, and Digital Renaissance in Oberhausen, Germany.
