The Flame artist joins studio after a 10-year stint at The Mill; artist’s project work includes John Lewis’ ‘Man on The Moon’ and Nike’s ‘Winner Stay.’
Post-production studio, Absolute, has expanded their visual effects department with the appointment of Flame Artist Joe Tang, who joins the team following a 10-year career at The Mill, with preceding roles at Smoke & Mirrors and TTV.
Tang’s portfolio boasts a number of high-profile projects, including John Lewis’ Man on The Moon, Nike’s Winner Stays, and Burberry’s The Tale of Thomas Burberry. He has worked alongside top agencies including as Droga5, Wieden+Kennedy, Grey and adam&eveDDB, as well as production companies including Pulse Films, Rogue and Somesuch. Tang has collaborated with directors Asif Kapadia and Baz Luhrmann, and considers one of his career highlights as being on set with Dominic West (AKA McNulty) from The Wire.
“I’m excited to get stuck into making cool work with lovely people – and having fun whilst doing it,” shared Tang.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Joe,” added Absolute’s creative partner, Phil Oldham. “He has a huge depth and breadth of work behind him and a metric ton of talent. Clients and colleagues alike had nothing but wonderful things to say and I’m looking forward to crafting projects together. He joins at an exciting time for Absolute, given the recent renascence of independent creatively-focused studios.”
