Chicago post house Hootenanny has promoted staffer Eddie Loera to VFX Artist, effective October 1st, 2019.

According to a press release, Loera has proven to be an invaluable asset to Hootenanny’s Finishing and Visual Effects Department since he joined the company at the start of his career in 2012.

“Eddie has been an important part of our growth in Visual Effects and Finishing, and he has taken on more responsibilities as our workload has increased,” explains VFX Artist and company partner Jim Annerino. “With his background in compositing and 3D, he has the perfect skillset to handle the wide variety of tasks we are asked to do.”

A steady rise in work prompted Hootenanny to also add a second Flame / visual effects studio, with Loera operating as VFX Artist.

Loera is a part of Hootenanny’s Finishing and VFX staff, which includes Annerino. Their work is produced by Executive Producer Don Avila and Producer Samm Smith.
