Carbon Chicago bolsters roster with addition of several key talents

Since opening its third office, in Chicago in 2016, Carbon continues to cement their place in the market by acquiring iconic brands Filmworkers Chicago and Vitamin, to become the second largest visual effects and design studio in the city. Carbon is excited to welcome all of the key talent that made these brands such a respected part of the film and advertising community.

“This is an exciting time for Carbon,” says Whitehouse Post Managing Partner David Brixton. “They are gaining some world-class talent to boost an already very strong roster, we’ll be offering clients an even larger creative team whilst continuing to deliver at the highest level.” Among those joining Carbon are industry mainstays Rob Churchill and Danny DelPurgatorio, both bringing with them a depth of talent and knowledge of the market that comes with the many years of experience they have heading up Filmworkers and Vitamin, respectively.

“Bringing together a larger group of creative minds broadens our bandwidth and allows us to offer even more capabilities in CG, design, VFX and production,” says Carbon Chicago Managing Director Phil Linturn. “With our expanded team, we’ll have increased Nuke capabilities as well as several illustrators, animators, and designers, capable of everything from stop-motion to shooting and directing. It will allow us to run more projects from concept through to completion, with expanded pitching capabilities. Coupled with our close connection to the editorial talent at Whitehouse Post, this really sets us apart from the rest of the market.”

With additional offices on both coasts, Carbon is poised to creatively challenge the entrenched legacy players in the business all the while providing unmatched production support.

Carbon is a full-service creative studio specializing in design, color, visual effects and motion graphics. With a holistic approach to client servicing, we collaborate at every stage of the process to create work that leaves a lasting impression.

Whitehouse Post believes in the art and craft of editorial storytelling built in a creative and supportive environment. Central to this philosophy is an emphasis on nurturing the best young talent into excellent storytellers who consider the importance of visuals, music and sound working together. Production and finishing partnerships with sister companies Cap Gun Collective and Carbon VFX, as well as with design-driven production company Gentleman Scholar, further cement Whitehouse Post as an invaluable creative resource for its clients. The studio’s deep reel of notable spots for high-profile brands and work on feature films and documentaries have earned hundreds of honors from AICP, BTAA, D&AD, Clio, and Cannes.
