FuseFX, an award-winning visual effects company, has promoted Johnny Fisk from LA Studio Head and global production VP to president of FuseFX. In this new role, Fisk will lead the growth and expansion of FuseFX into new avenues of VFX and new studio locations.
He will also continue to lead the business development group at FuseFX and be front and center with clients of the global studio.
“I’m excited and honored to take the venerable helm at FuseFX and continue the great legacy of this business as we go boldly into this pivotal moment for our industry. I look forward to embracing emerging technologies and promoting new levels of engagement across our offices as we navigate the expansive new roads ahead with our incredible global team,” said Fisk.
“I have been working closely with Johnny for the last few years as he has taken on more executive management of FuseFX. After starting at FuseFX just a few years ago, he quickly became an integral part of our leadership team. He has continued to prove his commitment and leadership, both in our LA studio and globally. Johnny taking the title of President of FuseFX reinforces the leadership role he established some time ago,” FuseFX CEO and founder David Altenau said.
Johnny brings over 20 years of experience to the table from small start-up operations to large-scale global studios, having worked as an artist, manager, producer, and in executive positions across a wide scope of productions. After rising through the executive ranks at Deluxe, he joined FuseFX and took on the role of executive producer – Los Angeles. Later he was promoted to LA Studio head and global production VP.
He has been a critical part of the executive team as FuseFX completed the acquisition of Folks VFX in 2019 and Rising Sun Pictures in 2021, resulting in a combined ten studio locations across the three brands. He has also played a key role in guiding FuseFX’s efforts in real-time VFX while staying engaged with people across all levels of the business.
