Buck, the bi-coastal design-driven creative company specializing in animation, visual effects and live action, recently signed Douglas Wilkinson as VFX Supervisor.
"As our clients and projects change, we are evolving with the market and are consequently expanding our capabilities and processes," said Ryan Honey, Creative Director, Buck/LA. "Doug brings a great amount of expertise in CG, visual effects, compositing and pipeline management that will help us better service our clients and allow us to offer a wider variety of creative solutions.

After graduating from Northeastern University in Boston, Wilkinson started his career at Rustmonkey, Inc., serving as Assistant VFX Supervisor. He then joined Digital Domain in 2004 where he worked with heavy hitter directors Brian Beletic, David Fincher and Joseph Kosinski. After taking various freelance positions, including a stint at Logan, he joined SWAY in April 2006.
