    Jake Morrison most recently acted as both Second Unit Director and Overall Visual Effects Supervisor for Marvel’s upcoming blockbuster “Thor: Love and Thunder.”

    Morrison supervised, shot and designed the visual effects for Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ as well as Marvel Studio’s blockbuster hit “Thor: Ragnarok.” Directed by Taika Waititi, the film clocked in at nearly 2,800 shots and resulted in a 2018 Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Best Visual Effects.

    Prior to this, Morrison supervised “Ant-Man”, directed by Peyton Reed, earning a BAFTA nomination for Special Visual Effects.

    As overall VFX Supervisor on Alan Taylor’s “Thor: The Dark World,” he received a Saturn Award nomination from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films. He began his tenure with Marvel Studios over ten years ago as Second Unit Supervisor on Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”.

    Morrison has been blending photography and computer graphics for over twenty-five years. Pursuing an early interest in creating real-time visuals to be performed alongside live music, Morrison taught himself a graphical programming language and learned video-sampling techniques. Since then he has pursued a career as a VFX / CG Supervisor as well as a Lead Compositor on many tent-pole films including Peter Jackson’s Oscar winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” and Zac Snyder’s “300” as well as numerous commercial and television credits.

    For the last 20 years Mark Russell has supervised and managed the visual effects in both studio and independent film projects with a broad range of commercial and artistic appeal. Mark began his career in film production in Los Angeles, working on groundbreaking films such as "Saving Private Ryan," "Minority Report," and "Hellboy." Since moving to Brooklyn in 2004, he has been advocating for the NY film and television community. He was the visual effects supervisor on J. C. Chandor’s "A Most Violent Year" and "Triple Frontier," "The Promise "with director Terry George and visual effects producer on Martin Scorsese’s "The Wolf of Wall Street." In addition to studio films like "In the Heights," "The Adjustment Bureau" and "Tower Heist," Mark has a soft spot for less commercial fare like "The Sleep Dealer," "Please Give, "Synecdoche, NY" and "The Europa Report."

    Mark is currently in pre-production on "Megalopolis" with Francis Ford Coppola which is scheduled to begin shooting in the fall.

    Ross Shain is a visual effects artist, software product designer, and the Chief Product Officer of Boris FX.
