“Queen Sugar”: Behind the VFX of OWN’s Upcoming Hit Show

Jul.13, 2016

Diverse, Supportive, and High-Caliber are just some of the words that Senior VFX Producer Lauren Ellis uses to describe her experience on set for OWN’s upcoming series “Queen Sugar.”

“It’s has been my most encouraging and growth-inducing experience to date for me as a VFX Producer…and in the best possible way! The bar is high but you’re not alone in making sure you meet it. The honesty and transparency is refreshing and there is no covering of your behind only. Everyone covers everyone.”

Meet the Molecule: Matthew T. Perry

May.24, 2016


Matt Perry stands by two of his works at The Art of Post exhibit in NYC on May 13, 2016

Many professionals in the Post Production community continue to make art after they leave the office for the day. (Fun Fact! That very idea was the impetus behind our recent bi-coastal art exhibit, The Art of Post.)

For the NYC Art of Post exhibit on Friday, May 13, Molecule Lead Compositor Matthew T. Perry submitted “Batman ’66 – Open Mic Night” and “2001: A Fantastic Odyssey” (pictured right). However, these two pieces are just a small portion of the art that Matt creates.

In addition to these paintings, Matt is also part of a team that creates the art for “The Last of the Giants,” a limited series comic about “an over-the-hill United States Space Marshal, Frank Rockwell.” The comic’s co-creator Michael Bailey draws with pencil and ink, while Matt hand-paints the colors with gouache. Both write the story, and they are currently finishing the second installment of the series. continue reading…

It’s Been A Ride! Creating The Roller Coaster Scene in Season 2 of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”

Apr.20, 2016

Friday April 15th marked the highly-anticipated return of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” to Netflix. For those who missed the first season (go watch it now!), the show follows Kimmy Schmidt (played by Ellie Kemper) as she adjusts to life in New York City after being trapped in an underground bunker by a cult leader for 15 years. She finds an apartment, a roommate named Titus Andromedon (played by Titus Burgess), and a job as a nanny for Jaqueline Vorhees (played by Jane Krakowski).

Season 2 continues to follow Kimmy’s adventures, one of them being a conversation with her long-lost mother on one of the most bananas rollercoasters in the country, The Rip Ride Rocket.
